Short-Term Loans: White and Tan to Richmond, Dykstra to Charleston

D.C. United has announced that defender Ethan White and recent addition Long Tan will go on loan to the Richmond Kickers for tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra, meanwhile, will be loaned to the Charleston Battery for Saturday's game against the visiting Wilmington Hammerheads. White has been on a handful of similar loans this season following his return to fitness after offseason knee surgery. The fact that United has actual depth at center back for the first time in many years has left him with few opportunities for competitive minutes. Oddly enough, his only appearance on the season was United's 2-1 win at Richmond in the US Open Cup. Tan is in a similar boat, minus the injury. United has excellent depth up top and on the wings; barring an injury or suspension, Tan is unlikely to get time on a team that already has guys like Hamdi Salihi and Nick DeLeon starting games on the bench. On the plus side, loans like this are better for him than his old situation, playing on loan for the Vancouver Whitecaps PDL team. Dykstra has possibly spent more time on loan at Charleston than he has actually been present for United games. It's hard to get a third choice GK minutes - even in the reserves, assuming your team ever actually plays reserve games - so the fact that the Battery keep wanting him back is a positive for everyone involved.
