ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (June 20, 2017) — The Tampa Bay Rowdies have released forward Deshorn Brown, allowing him to sign with Major League Soccer’s D.C. United, the club announced Tuesday.
“We wish Deshorn the best of luck in D.C. United,” said Rowdies head coach Stuart Campbell. “He’s a very talented player, who will be an asset to any club he joins in his career. It’s been a privilege to coach him in his time at the Rowdies. We knew this was an opportunity Deshorn couldn’t turn down, and as a club, we didn’t want to stand in the way of his ambitions to return to MLS.”
Brown scored three goals in 15 appearances for the Rowdies this season after signing with the club in March.
Brown came to the Rowdies after playing for Shenzhen in the China League One. He previously played for the Colorado Rapids in MLS and Vålerenga in Norway.
