Terms of the deal have not been disclosed but we could be looking at a record transfer fee for a MLS player. Newcastle was getting desperate since their coach threatened to leave if a deal wasn’t done this week.
Despite the huge loss for the champs of MLS, Pity Martinez is excepted to fill the void left by one of the best players in the league. Atlanta United also has a slew of depth, which it will need especially playing in CCL starting in a month.
Atlanta United’s hands were also tied due to having four DPs on the roster. They were facing a March 30th deadline.
