Freddy Adu will be making his return to the MLS and he'll do so by joining the Philadelphia Union, according to SoccerByIves.net.
Adu will be introduced as the Philadelphia Union's newest signing on
Friday, marking his return to MLS after four years in Europe, multiple
sources confirmed to Fox Soccer on Thursday.
The rumors swirling around Adu pegged him landing with Chivas USA, but that deal apparently fell apart, setting up Adu being reunited with his former coach Peter Nowak.
Adu will instantly add some star power in Chester to a team that is somewhat lacking in that area despite its success this season. Union fans should be thrilled with the move, as Adu is exactly the creative go-at people sort of player they need.
UPDATE: Multiple sources have confirmed that Adu is set to join the Union. He will be introduced in a press conference tomorrow.
Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
