The Philadelphia Union have signed midfielder Jack McGlynn to a Homegrown contract, effective in 2021, the club announced Monday. McGlynn is the club's 14th Homegrown signing in club history.

McGlynn, 17, is currently with the club's USL affiliate and has made six appearances for them in the USL Championship. He will remain with Union II for the remainder of 2020 before joining the first team in 2021. 

“We are excited to welcome Jack to the first team,” said Ernst Tanner, Union sporting director, in a team statement. “After signing with Union II, he has continued to impress the technical staff with his development after making an early impact with our USL team. His ability to play across the midfield and his capacity to process new information and put it in to action on the pitch at a young age shows how high his ceiling can be.”
