MONTREAL (AP) The Philadelphia Union have traded Major League Soccer All-Star Jack McInerney to the Montreal Impact for Andrew Wenger in a swap of forwards.
The 21-year-old McInerney led the Union in scoring with 12 goals in 31 league games last season after scoring eight league goals in 2012. He has one goal in four games this year.
