Three players were selected in Stage One of the Re-Entry Process on Thursday.
Gutman, 24, was on loan with FC Cincinnati from Celtic over the last season and a half. He was an academy product of Chicago Fire FC before eventually signing with Celtic. He made 21 appearances (15 starts) this season and is a left back.
Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, all players selected in Stage One and may not select their own draft-eligible players. Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club's roster. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the Right of First Refusal for that player in MLS.
Stage Two is Tuesday at 11 am ET. If a player is selected, the drafting club will be required to make a genuine offer to the player within seven days. If an agreement cannot be reached between the drafting club and the player, the drafting club will hold the Right of First Refusal for that player in MLS.
