D.C. United announced today that they are loaning out defender Ethan White and forward Long Tan to the Richmond Kickers for tonight’s match against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. By now, Ethan White is a familiar face to many Kickers fans, playing both as a right back and as a center back. His loan is especially needed, with Shane Johnson still out, Henry Kalungi serving a red card suspension, and Yomby William not playing well. Long Tan was recently acquired by D.C. United in a trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps and is known as a speedy and creative player. He could either serve as a second half substitute or start and give Christopher Agorsor a break.
There will be more information later tonight as I make my triumphant return to City Stadium and the press box. Look for the match thread around 5!
