Nashville SC trade Adrián Zendejas to Minnesota United

NASHVILLE, TN – Nashville SC announced Thursday that they’ve sent goalkeeper Adrián Zendejas to Minnesota United in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft, as well as up to $100,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM) if certain performance-based metrics are met.

Zendejas was acquired by Nashville in the 2020 expansion draft for a total of $175k in allocation money, part of an unofficial package deal with midfielder Jimmy Medranda.

Zendejas appeared on the bench for Nashville’s first two matches, but after the league restarted from the forced Covid-19 break, SuperDraft pick Elliot Panicco has been the second-choice ‘keeper.

Nashville also acquired USMNT youth international Brady Scott in August. Scott is currently on loan in the USL Championship with Sacramento Republic, but Nashville retain the right to recall him at any time.

Nashville SC travel to Columbus on Saturday to take on the conference leading Crew SC.
