Minnesota United announced Monday that it has loaned midfielder Thomas Chacon out for the 2021 season.

According to the club, Chacon was loaned to Liverpool FC of the Uruguayan first division for the season with an option to buy.

"We felt that given Thomas has been with us two seasons and has had limited playing time, that it was imperative he go and play some football, that's the most important thing," MNUFC Head Coach Adrian Heath said. "He's still only 20 years of age, he's got time left on his contract, but the kid has got to play and we think this is the best opportunity for him in his development as a footballer. He'll be in his home country, near his family, we're hoping it's a really successful loan spell for him and when he comes back, he's ready to make an impact for us on the field."
