Giliano Wijnaldum started off his career in promising fashion with the likes of AZ Alkmaar and FC Groningen but after having failed to come good on his promise, the left-back was recently released by German outfit VfL Bochum.
Now Wijnaldum will be looking to revive his career in a completely new environment as it can be confirmed that the 24-year-old has been signed by Major League Soccer side the Union.
Union sporting director Earnie Stewart confirmed the signing with the following statement on the club's official website: "We're pleased to welcome Giliano to Philadelphia Union and are excited about the talent he adds to our defensive corps.
"As a young player who I have worked with before in the Netherlands, I know first hand the potential he brings to our club. We are eager to integrate him within the squad and believe he has a bright future with the Union."
