FC Cincinnati will have some intriguing choices from which to pick from New York City FC in the Major League Soccer expansion draft Tuesday.
Among those players available include midfielder-forward Tommy McNamara, all-purpose man Rodney Wallace, forward Jo Inge Berget and midfielder Yangel Herrera, who is on loan from Manchester City.
City placed 15 players on its unprotected list.
The team’s full list:
Jo Inge Berget
It should be noted that Villa has left NYCFC and will play in Japan next year.
The above 15 players should give you an idea of perhaps of some of the players that head coach Domenec Torrent will release or trade during the winter.
FC Cincinnati can make up to five picks to help build out the team’s roster for the 2019 season.
City’s 11-player protected list:
Jonathan Lewis is exempt from selection as a current member of Generation adidas, while James Sands and Joe Scally cannot be taken due to their Homegrown status.
There will be five rounds as FC Cincinnati can select up to five players from the eligible pool. The club can only claim a only player from any club.
Cincy will be allowed three minutes for each selection with no timeouts.
Also, no trades will be permitted during the draft.
