New York Red Bulls Trade Sebastien Le Toux to Philadelphia Union for Josue Martinez

Mike Stobe

After a disappointing stint with the New York Red Bulls, Sebastien Le Toux is on the move to an Eastern Conference rival. In return, the Red Bulls received forward Josue Martinez and allocation money.

Shortly after re-signing Sebastien Le Toux, the New York Red Bulls traded him to the Philadelphia Union today for forward Josue Martinez and allocation money. While Le Toux never contributed to the team as some had hoped, New York was essentially able to turn a mid-season trade of Dane Richards, who will be leaving MLS to play abroad, into Josue Martinez and allocation money. A small consolation for fans who longed for Richards' speed on the right wing that was sorely missed during the final stretch of the regular season and playoffs.

In Martinez, the Red Bulls gain an affordable young attacking player who may not make a giant splash with the team next year, but provides much better depth than previous options such as Jose Angulo or Jhonny Arteaga. Martinez has been capped sixteen times by Costa Rica and before the Union played for Deportivo Saprissa, experience that might come in handy should New York ever qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League.
