D.C. United have announced that the club has signed two players - midfielder Brandon Barklage and defender Anthony Peters. Barklage was originally selected in the third round (36th overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft, while Peters joins United after completing a trial with the team during preseason.

"We are pleased to bring Brandon on board as a member of United," said United General Manager Dave Kasper. "He has good technical qualities and he will provide us with solid cover in the midfield."

Kasper continued: "Anthony has earned a contract with us through his solid play during our most recent pre-season training camp. We are intrigued with his size and presence, and we look forward to his future contributions to our club."
