MARVELL WYNNE TRADED TO TORONTO FC
While serving his very brief tenure as Head Coach of the New York Metrostars (now known as Red Bulls), our very own Sir Mo, made a last minute deal to trade up in the 2006 MLS Superdraft in order to acquire highly coveted defender Marvell Wynne. Well according to New Jersey Star Ledger reporter Ives Galacerp, Mo has once again acquired the coveted young American. Toronto FC is apparently sending the # 2 Draft Pick in the 2008 MLS Superdraft and possibly allocation money to New York, in exchange for Wynne. The trade has yet to be made official by either side. Wynne is the son of former Major League baseball player Marvell Wynne Sr. Wynne II played two years of college soccer at UCLA, and has been a member of the USA Youth National Youth team program. Wynne was a member of the US U-20 team at the last FIFA World Championships in 2005. He will count as a Youth International for Toronto FC, though I believe he has graduated from the Generation Adidas Program where his salary did not count against the team salary cap in year one.
