MLS teams load up on USL-Pro players as roster deadline day concludes quietly

While it wasn't quite as crazy as the close of the European transfer window, Thursday's close of the MLS transaction window did bring a flurry of moves, though no real blockbusters or moves involving big-name players.

The deadline day activity was confined to one minor trade and a raid on the roster of USL-Pro champions Orlando City, with three Orlando City players making moves to MLS sides. The most impressive of the pick-ups has to be Real Salt Lake's acquisition of USL-Pro MVP Yordany Alvarez, a midfielder who should provide some good depth for an RSL side that could be looking to provide some rest for its starting midfielders down the stretch.

Here is the rundown of Thursday's MLS deadline day transactions:

Toronto FC traded defender Dasan Robinson to the Los Angeles Galaxy for defender Kyle Davies.

Real Salt Lake signed USL-Pro Player of the Year Yordany Alvarez from Orlando City. RSL also signed Home Grown Academy player Nico Muniz.

Sporting Kansas City signed Kenyan defender Lawrence Olum from Orlando City.

The San Jose Earthquakes have acquired forward Maxwell Griffin on loan from Orlando City.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have signed Trinidad & Tobago centerback Carlyle Mitchell.

The Philadelphia Union signed midfielder Morgan Langley from Harrisburg City Islanders.
