From Philly Soccer News comes a report indicating that Lori Chalupny will join Philadelphia Independence.
Former United States National Team midfielder Lori Chalupny is expected to join the Philadelphia Independence for the 2012 Women’s Professional Soccer season.
The club and Chalupny have agreed to terms on a deal, pending a final contract.
The St. Louis native started 17 games for the Atlanta Beat last season, registering a pair of goals while logging 1451 minutes. She joined the Beat in 2010 after spending 2009 and part of 2010 with Saint Louis Athletica before the club folded.
Atlanta Head Coach James Galanis called Chalupny “one of the top five players in the world.” At the time of her last appearance for the U.S., she was one of the team’s best players. She wore the captain’s armband for that win against Germany.
