D.C. United’s busy summer of signings shows no signs of slowing down.
The club announced on Thursday that they had acquired midfielder Conor Doyle on-loan for the rest of the season from Derby County in England’s Championship. D.C. United received Doyle through a lottery conducted by the league. Per league and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Doyle, a Texas native and former U.S. Under-20 member, had been training with the Colorado Rapids during the summer, but due to the lottery, the Rapids weren’t able to sign the 21-year-old. Last season at Derby, Doyle made just two appearances, while featuring in the 18 but not playing on 24 more occasions.
Doyle’s acquisition is the 15th signing of the season for D.C. United. Already, three of the players acquired have been sent on loan or waived this season.
What do you think of this news? Do you see Doyle stepping into the D.C. United starting lineup? Do you believe the Rapids should have been able to sign Doyle on loan?
