Union Bring Back All-Time Leading Scorer LeToux

Posted: Updated:

The Philadelphia Union have made a deal with their MLS rivals, the Red Bulls, to reacquire a fan-favorite.

Sebastien LeToux is back with the team after a one-season absence.

LeToux, was traded to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC prior to last season.

The Union's all-time leading scorer was returned to PPL Park on Thursday in a deal that sent allocation money and Costa Rican forward Josue Martinez to New York.

"The only team I wanted to play for was Philadelphia," LeToux was quoted as saying at a news conference Friday morning. "I have stars in my eyes. I am so happy to be back here."

LeToux, who recorded 25 goals and 20 assists in 62 appearances for the Union, tallied just one goal and one assist during the 2012 season, which was split between Vancouver and New York.

Martinez appeared 18 times for the Union and also scored one goal.

LeToux is expected to play up top with the Union's Jack McInerney.
