[UPDATED -- deal is now done]
D.C. United has finalized a contract for Jamaican-born forward Nicholas Addlery, who had been in camp on an extended tryout. He's the guy who was supposed to play for the Virginia Beach Mariners when the USL club went under this spring. He has a green card and will not count against the international limit. However, he will turn 26 this year and will have to occupy one of the 18 senior roster spots.
Who gets demoted to developmental status? Devon McTavish just got promoted, so I doubt he would get dropped. Rod Dyachenko, who has yet to play because of a knee injury, and reserve goalkeeper Jay Nolly are candidates.
Developmental players can be either domestic or international and must be 24 years of age (goalkeepers may be 25) or younger during the calendar year of competition. Dyachenko will turn 24 in September, Nolly turned 25 in January.
