Nashville SC gets $175k GAM from Vancouver for international roster spot

Nashville SC announced Monday morning that they’ve traded a 2021 international roster spot to Vancouver Whitecaps in exchange for $175,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM). It’s the second international spot they’ve traded in the last week, having previously dealt a spot to Atlanta United for the same amount.

The move leaves Nashville with five international spots available for the 2021 season. While four are currently occupied, General Manager Mike Jacobs told media last week that the reason they’re trading international spots is “because we’re flipping green cards so quickly,” and that the club would announce the acquisition of new green cards soon. Currently, midfielders Hany Mukhtar and Randall Leal, defender Miguel Nazarit and forward Jhonder Cádiz occupy international spot.
