Reports: Orozco set for MLS move to Philly


Michael Orozco (

American defender Michael Orozco has been off the U.S. national team radar for some time, but he may be set for a move to help him get back into Bob Bradley's sights.

Reports from Mexico have linked Orozco to a move to Major League Soccer. Record is reporting that Orozco has left San Luis and will be signing with the Philadelphia Union.

It remains unclear whether the Union will be able to land Orozco with a Discovery claim or if Orozco's one national team cap will force him to go through Major League Soccer's Allocation selection process to join a team (returning current and former U.S. national team players are supposed to go through an Allocation process. New York currently holds the top allocation spot).

Orozco played on the U.S. Olympic team two years ago under Peter Nowak. He is remembered rather infamously for drawing an early red card in a must-win group match against eventual silver medalist Nigeria. He had been a regular starter for San Luis before falling out of favor toward the tail end of the 2009 Apertura season.
