This is the fourth time this offseason that Nashville have traded an international roster spot for $175k in GAM, in addition to one they traded for winger Alex Muyl last summer. This leaves Nashville with three international spots through the summer, and all three are currently occupied. Hany Mukhtar, Randall Leal and Jhonder Cádiz each take up an international spot, although Nashville are expected to announce new green card acquisitions shortly.

The 2021 MLS SuperDraft will take place on Thursday, January 21, starting at 1PM central. It will be broadcast on the league website and app, as well as FacebookTwitterYouTube and Pluto TV. A full list of eligible players can be found here.
