I meant to update this after the news of Maurice Edu and Philadelphia became official.

Anyways, we have a new team in front of the ‘order’ now, as Seattle moves up thanks to Philly’s move to land Edu on loan. Toronto, Columbus and Dallas follow up now after that. The next player to return to MLS appears to be Marco Pappa. Seattle certainly has interest for him but he does want to return to Chicago, who is now seventh in the order. Hello trade? We’ll certainly see.

  1. Seattle Sounders FC (swap with Chivas USA on Dec 11)
  2. Toronto FC
  3. Columbus Crew
  4. FC Dallas

  6. Vancouver Whitecaps
