FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution traded forward Teal Bunbury to Nashville SC in exchange for up to $150,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM). New England receives $75,000 in GAM from Nashville and an additional $75,000 if Bunbury meets certain performance-based metrics.

We wish Teal all the best in Nashville.”
