United acquire SuperDraft pick from Minnesota in exchange for Collin Martin

D.C. United have acquired a 2018 fourth-round MLS SuperDraft pick from Minnesota United FC in exchange for midfielder Collin Martin. 

Martin, 22, signed for the Black-and-Red on July 10, 2013, as the sixth Homegrown signing for D.C. United. The midfielder made his debut as a 76th-minute substitute in United’s 3-1 win against Montreal on Aug. 3, 2013, where he recorded his first and only assist in the 93rd minute. 

“Collin has been a part of the United family for several years, and we wish him the best as he continues his career,” Dave Kasper, United general manager and VP of soccer operations, said.

Since his debut, the 22-year-old made 15 total appearances for the Black-and-Red and made his first start in two years in the final 2016 MLS regular season game against Orlando City SC on October 23.

Martin joins former United assistant coach Amos Magee at Minnesota United FC. Magee, who spent three seasons as a Black-and-Red assistant coach, joined MNUFC as director of player personnel on November 16.
