There's been a trade in the MLS and it is an interesting one. 

The Montreal Impact and Philadelphia Union have swapped strikers with Jack McInerney heading north of the border to the Impact and Andrew Wenger travelling in the opposite direction.

The deal seems incredibly lop-sided on the face of it, with Montreal looking like they have gotten a much better deal from the transaction.

McInerney is a talented goal scorer and a real bright spark who could have a distinct future in American soccer. 

The 21-year old is already in his 5th season in MLS and has racked up 25 goals in 95 appearances while at the Union.

Wenger on the other hand is more of hard working player and doesn't boast the same goal scoring prowess as 'Jack Mac'.

The 23-year old Wenger - no relation to the Arsenal manager - was selected with the first pick in the 2012 SuperDraft.

In 56 career appearances for the Impact, the former Duke Blue Devil has managed just six goals while primarily being a back up for Marco Di Vaio and not really finding his best position in professional soccer.

Montreal's front line has just become a fearsome entity with Di Vaio and McInerney and if they click then the potential is limitless.
