MLS: Philadelphia Union at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Wooten is the fifth highest paid player on the Philadelphia Union roster this season, according to an updated salary guide released by the MLS Players Association on Friday.

Wooten’s total compensation is listed at $595,833.33, which puts him slightly ahead of Haris Medunjanin and after Sergio Santos, Jamiro Monteiro, Alejandro Bedoya and Marco Fabian on the updated list.

Overall total compensation went up 10 percent from $8,959,605 in figures released in June to $9,854,738.

Joe Bendik ($144,000.00), Jack de Vries ($120,556.25) and RJ Allen ($70,250.04) were additions to the list while Carlos Miguel Coronel ($148,425) is the only player from the June update no longer on the list. De Vries won’t officially be added to the roster until January 2020 but is the second highest paid homegrown player on the list behind Auston Trusty ($124,100.04).

The $895,133 increase in total compensation also came from bumps Jamiro Monteiro ($102,000), Anthony Fontana ($8,417.60) and Brenden Aaronson ($2,500.48) saw in guaranteed compensation.

Note: Figures for players added during the summer transfer window reflect what their full season compensation would be.
