Mwanga, Daniel in Union camp

Posted: February 07, 2012

Forward Danny Mwanga and midfielder Keon Daniel have arrived in camp and will train with the Union in Florida through Feb. 19, the team reported Monday.

The first overall pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, Mwanga spent 10 days training with English Premier League side Aston Villa. He was the seventh member of the Union to train abroad in the offseason. Mwanga scored five goals and added four assists in 2011 in Major League Soccer after scoring seven goals with four assists as a rookie.

Daniel joined the club for the first time since departing for Trinidad and Tobago to play with his national team on Aug. 26, 2011. In 2011, Daniel scored a goal and added two assists in 888 minutes in 18 appearances for the Union, including nine starts.

MLS supplemental draft picks Tom Brandt and Brandon Zimmerman have not been retained by the team. Brandt, a 21-year-old defender, was the 13th overall selection out of Penn. Zimmerman, a 21-year-old midfielder, was the 52d overall selection out of Santa Clara.
