Despite Monday being the deadline to announce contract options, the Philadelphia Union have been silent as to who is staying and who is going. Some teams and players have already announced roster moves, most of which were posted on Twitter today.

The only player to personally announce his departure from the Union was Danny Cruz, who tweeted a letter addressed to the Sons of Ben and other Union fans:

"I want to thank all of you for your support over the last 3 years. Those of you that didn't like me as a player pushed me to be a better player. Those of you that loved me made me genuinely grateful to be able to play in front of you. Philadelphia will always have a special place in my heart and I hope that you know I never gave anything less then all I had. I am excited for the future but I felt that I owed it to you to thank you for all the amazing memories you've given me."

Where Cruz will play next has not been announced.

Meanwhile, FC Cincinnati unveiled Union defender Austin Berry and former Union midfielder Corben Bone as the expansion team's first signings.

Berry has been on a season long lone with FC Anyang and Corben Bone has been with the Wilmington Hammerheads since 2014.
