D.C. United has completed a trade with Atlanta United for the rights to winger Yamil Asad, the two MLS sides announced on Tuesday.

Asad spent 2017 on loan from Argentina Superliga club Velez with the expansion MLS side during its debut season.

In exchange, D.C. sends Atlanta $200,000 of general allocation money (GAM) and $100,000 in targeted allocation money (TAM) in 2018, and an additional $100,000 of both GAM and TAM in 2019. If Asad plays a game in MLS for D.C. in 2020, it will send another $100,00 of GAM to Atlanta.

The D.C.'s loan deal with Velez includes a purchase option.

“Yamil is a bright talent in MLS, who was a major contributor to Atlanta’s successful inaugural campaign,” D.C. United general manager Dave Kasper said in a statement.

Benitez to launch internal debate on lack of transfers

  Benitez to launch internal debate on lack of transfers Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez says he will be forced into an ‘internal debate’ with his staff about the lack of transfer business completed in January. The Guardian report that the Spaniard was quizzed about the small number of deals being linked with a lack of professionalism above him at the club, to which Benitez responded: “That’s another debate for the future, an internal debate. We have plenty of time to talk about those things.There’s a time when you have to say something.” The Magpies were only able to bring in three players during the January transfer window, all of which arrived on loan deals. Kenedy joined from Chelsea on loan until the end of the season and has looked impressive in his first two Newcastle appearances. The Brazilian, who had lost his way at Chelsea, has added some flair and pace in the final third. Leicester City striker Islam Slimani also joined on loan, as Benitez goes in search of a regular source of goals. Summer signing Joselu remains their top goalscorer this season with just four goals to his name. Martin Dubravka also joined on loan from Sparta Prague until the end of the season.

“His pace, skill and creativity in wide areas will provide us with an additional attacking dimension. He’s a young player who plays with a big personality and a high work rate, and he will continue to develop and improve with more experience in this league. We’re thrilled to add him.”

Asad had an excellent debut season with Atlanta United, scoring seven goals and adding 13 assists for the Five Stripes. His assist total was second on the team behind Miguel Almirion.

However, despite the strong first year in MLS, Asad was deemed a surplus to the requirements in Atlanta as it brought in Darlington Nagbe and Ezequiel Barco during the winter.

It had been rumored Asad would remain in the league, with Minnesota reported as a possible destination.

Since Atlanta maintained Asad's MLS rights, any team in the league who wished to land him on loan, or purchase him, from Velez had to also send compensation to the Five Stripes.

Prior to Atlanta, the 23-year-old Asad had spent the entirety of his career with Velez, which was also the club of his father, Omar Asad.
