The New York Red Bulls have traded striker Sebastien LeToux back to the Philadelphia Union for allocation money and the rights to a player to be named later, according to sources with knowledge of the trade confirmed to SoccerByIves.com.

The trade came the same day the Red Bulls made a Bona Fide offer to LeToux to secure his MLS rights, which paved the way for the trade.

The player to be named later has yet to be informed of the trade, but sources tell SBI the player is not a high-profile player for the Union.

Union dealt LeToux to the Vancouver Whitecaps for allocation money less than a year ago. The Red Bulls traded for him in 2011. He scored 25 goals in his previous stint with Union (2010-11).
