Philadelphia Union have reportedly signed defender Bakary Soumare.

The Daily News suggests that the Union have come to an agreement with the 26-year old Malian defender with a deal set to be complete soon.

Soumare has been brought in by Philly as the club currently sits second bottom on the Eastern Conference table after conceding 15 goals in 13 outings so far this season.

The former Chicago Fire, Bolougne and Karslruhe man will be free to join the Union on Thursday when the next transfer window opens.
