Carlos Valdes Close to Joining Union According to S. American Reports

Carlos Valdes, a central defender with Santa Fe, is supposedly close to joining the Philadelphia Union on a loan basis according to this credible Colombian report.

Carlos Valdes, a towering 6 ft 1 in central defender would immediately establish a great presence in front of Mondragon. Only 25 years old and is already part of the Colombian National Team that boasts other defenders including: Ivan Ramiro Cordoba, Mario Yepes, Camilo Zuniga, Luis Perea among others. He started every game for Santa Fe this season and if it does happen, he would absolutely be a gem to the Union.

Union fans, what are your thoughts?

    Great for the U….we are still un sure of Mondi….but what a great addition it would be…..the SOB’s luv Colombian viva

    Sounds like this Valdez deal is practically dead in the water … either he wants to come to the Union permanently (not a loan deal) or wants to stay in Colombia (and play for Once Caldas). Google translate can only do so much.

    … or not. The U is announcing 2 new player signings tomorrow (Thurs, Jan 20th), and introducing them to the fans at noon. Mondragon is one, and Valdez is presumably the other.

    So, what’s the word on Jorge Perlaza?
