A USMNT bomb dropped late Monday night, as ESPN’s Mark Stein revealed that the Philadelphia Union are in advanced talks to bring Alejandro Bedoya to Major League Soccer.

Bedoya, a steady presence in the United States international squad since 2013, has been with French side FC Nantes for the last three seasons, 96 appearances and scoring 14 goals.

The 29-year-old New Jersey product follows a number of United States internationals who have come back home to Major League Soccer after a lengthy European career over the last half-decade, such as Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, and most recently Tim Howard.

The Chicago Fire hold the #1 spot in the Allocation ranking.

Bedoya, an outspoken presence on social media, is a defensively stout winger with a high work rate who can also get forward and have an attacking presence.
