Just one hour after the MLS Expansion Draft ended, Minnesota United and Atlanta United have completed a trio of trades involving their recently acquired players.
Minnesota announced that it traded fullback Chris Duvall to the Montreal Impact in exchange for Costa Rica international winger Johan Venegas.
Duvall was Minnesota’s first pick in the draft and will replace Donny Toia, who was dealt by Atlanta to Orlando City in exchange for the Lions’ first-round pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.
Atlanta wasn’t done, though. After selecting Toronto FC goalkeeper Clint Irwin, the club traded him back to TFC for fullback and Georgia native Mark Bloom along with general allocation money.
