Union fan favorite will reportedly sign a ceremonial one-day contract

David Musante - Brotherly Game

Philadelphia Union legend Sébastien Le Toux will have a chance to retire in blue and gold, after all.

Kevin Kinkead is reporting at Crossing Broad that multiple sources have told him Le Toux will sign “a one-day ceremonial contract to retire as a Union player.”

The 34-year-old Frenchman scored the club’s first goal and had 49 more over two stints in Chester from 2010-2011 and 2013-2016. He also had 50 assists during his career with the Union, scored once in the playoffs and scored five of his 16 goals in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup with the Union.

He made 16 appearances last season with D.C. United, but his contract was terminated before season’s end and he’s been without a club home since. He was traded from the Union to the Colorado Rapids in August 2016 for general allocation money to clear up salary cap and roster space after the team acquired Alejandro Bedoya.

Just last week he paid a visit to the South Jersey youth club Cherry Hill FC.
