Philadelphia Union today announced the trade of Jamaican defender Shavar Thomas to the Kansas City Wizards.

In exchange for Thomas, the Wizards sent Philadelphia two second round MLS SuperDraft selections, one in 2011 and one in 2012, as well as allocation money. Thomas, 29, played for the Wizards from 2004-2006.

The Union acquired Thomas from Chivas USA through the MLS Expansion Draft held on November 25, 2009.

He made just one appearance with the Union, replacing Roger Torres in the 56th minute of Philadelphia's 2-1 loss at Toronto FC on April 15, 2010.
