Both of these reports come from a foreign outlet that I’m not too familiar with, so there’s your disclaimer.
From the article on Accam, who the club traded for less than a year ago:
FC Cincinnati, who begin their MLS play in 2019 as a club in the Eastern Conference, have targeted the Ghana international.
Accam, 28, has been identified as one of five current players in the Major Soccer League to help shape the core of their inaugural roster and could be selected during the Expansion Draft, expected to be released on Monday, December 10.
FC Cincinnati will likely take the gamble and engage in a draft-trade with Philadelphia Union for his signature.
And here’s the relevant information from the Sapong story:
Major Soccer League side Philadelphia Union are likely to trade Charles Nana Kwabena Sarpong to FC Cincinnati in a major trade, GHANAsoccernet.com understands.
The 29-year-old is among three players including compatriot David Accam who are being considered for the draft-trade.
If there’s any truth to these stories, it sounds like the Union are going to pull a pre-draft deal that would send one player to Cincy on the condition that they select the other in expansion.
