D.C. United, Allsopp part ways after one season

D.C. United announced Monday they have parted ways with forward Danny Allsopp after the Australian forward scored five goals in 23 league appearances with the club during his only season in Washington.

The club and Allsopp mutually agreed to terminate the forward’s contract. Allsopp made 18 starts for D.C. United and tied rookie Andy Najar for the team lead in goals, including three-game winning goals.

“We would like to thank Danny for his contributions to D.C. United and we wish him well in the future,” said United general manager Dave Kasper in a statement.

Allsopp joined the club in January after previously playing for Al-Rayyan in Qatar. He spent the bulk of his career in England before joining MLS, including stints with Notts County and Manchester City. He also spent four years with the Melbourne Victory in his native Australia from 2005 to '09.
