For the second day in a row, Union have sign a player with world cup experience. Yesterday, defender Oguchi Onyewu signed with the team, today, midfielder Haris Medunjanin signed with the Union. The signing is a two year deal with a third year option, using Targeted Allocation Money. Haris Medunjanin is a Bosnian native, who has been a consist player in the Bosnia and Herzegovina National Team squad since 2009. Haris Medunjanin is central midfielder, who Kevin Kinkead of Phillyvoice describes as a Nogueira type of player with more of an attacking mindset.

Madunjanin started his professional career with AZ, later playing with teams such as Valladolid, Gaziantepspor and Maccabi Tel Aviv. He made one appearance in the 2014 World Cup with the Bosnia and Herzegovina National Team.

The signing of Madunjanin gives the Union some flexibility in the midfielder. He could play as a number 8, allowing Alejandro Bedoya to move up in the number 10 spot. Through, the Union could play Alberg at the 10 spot and Bedoya at the 8 spot, leaving Madunjanin as a backup.
