David Accam is on the move again, or at least he will be come New Year’s Day.

The 28-year-old Ghanaian forward was acquired by Nashville SC on Thursday, days after being sent to Columbus by the Philadelphia Union.

Accam will stay with the Crew through the season, moving to Nashville on Jan. 1, 2020.

A force for the Fire during his first three seasons in the league, Accam struggled in Philadelphia last season and was sent packing despite scoring four times with two assists early this season.

Dealt to Columbus last week for $500,000 in allocation money and an international roster spot, the Crew sends him onward for $450,000 in allocation (plus the use of Accam the rest of the season).

Accam made his Crew debut over the weekend, coming off the bench and playing 25 minutes in a 3-0 loss to LAFC.
