Philadelphia Union have parted ways with midfielder Keon Daniel.

The Union have waived the 27-year old Trinidad & Tobago international after three years with the club which saw him feature 64 times in MLS.

Of the decision to release Daniel, Philly head coach John Hackworth said in a statement: "We think this move is the best decision for both Keon's career and our club.

"We wish him luck and thank him for his contributions to the Union."

Daniel, who joined the Union from Puerto Rico Islanders in 2011, mutually agreed to have his contract terminated following the offseason arrivals of midfielders Maurice Edu (on loan from Stoke City), Cristian Maidana and Vincent Nogueira.
