Even though the big news in the MLS recently was on the Superdraft there were three moves made near draft day by three teams in the Eastern Conference.
D.C. United acquires forward Fronco Neill on a one-year loan.
Franco was brought in on loan from Argentinos Junior to add some offense to D.C. United. And is expected to join the team for the beginning of the preseason. Neil will be added to the roster of D.C. United when he obtains his work visa and all the international transfer papers are complete. Since making his debut in the 2004-2005 season Neill has scored 10 goals in 60 games. D.C. United led the Eastern Conference in goals last year with 56 and with Neill now in the fold they add another dangerous forward to their already formidable front line.
