Inter Miami CF announced today that it has traded midfielder Lee Nguyen to the New England Revolution in exchange for the team’s natural fourth-round selection in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft and $50,000 GAM if performance-based metrics are met.
“We want to thank Lee for his contributions to the team during our inaugural season and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Paul McDonough, Inter Miami CF’s COO & Sporting Director. “This trade provides us with salary flexibility for this and next year, as we continue to solidify our roster.”
