After appearing in just five matches for Real Salt Lake last season, both RSL and defender Adam Henley have mutually parted ways.
“We want to thank Adam for his time with the club and wish him the best in his next opportunity,” General Manager Craig Waibel said in the club statement. “This move is mutually beneficial as it allows Adam the opportunity to openly seek out a club where he might find more playing time to continue his development and also allows us the roster flexibility to potentially make additions to the squad in the summer.”
The 24-year-old Henley only made two starts within those five matches and also appeared in eight matches on loan with Real Monarchs, RSL’s USL Championship side. (READ)

Philadelphia Union assistant Dick Schreuder is leaving the Union for an opportunity in the Bundesliga at 1899 Hoffenheim.
The club announced on Monday that he’s accepted a coaching job at Hoffenheim alongside his brother Alfred, who was recently named the new head coach.
Schreuder joined the Union’s coaching staff last year as the club made the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, although it was a short cameo in the postseason when they lost at NYCFC in both the regular season finale and in the knockout round.
He will stay with the Union through their June 8th match against the Red Bulls. The Union plans to fill his role internally through the end of the season. (READ)
