SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake made their first big roster move of the 2019-20 off-season after they acquired $150,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM) and $150,000 in Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) from Atlanta United FC in exchange for Brooks Lennon.

“Brooks has been an integral part of the RSL family for years, starting with our Academy and excelling at every level along the way,” RSL interim general manager Elliot Fall said. “To be able to get an offer of this value speaks to his development as a player. We are in the fortunate position that we have enough depth to make a trade like this and the Allocation Money we acquired creates an opportunity to further improve our roster.”

Lennon’s professional career started with RSL back when he was a teenager. In 2015, Lennon made the trip across the pond to play for Liverpool. Unfortunately, the RSL academy product never saw the pitch for Liverpool’s first team and was traded back to RSL on December 20, 2017.

Since then, Lennon has made 61 appearances for the Claret and Cobalt playing as both a defender and an attacker. Originally thought to be the next big winger for RSL, his talents were quickly required at right-back.

Lennon was frequently played at both right-back and right-wing and became a utility man for Mike Petke and Freddy Juarez.

Lennon has also represented the US national team at the U-17, U-18 and U-20 levels. Winning the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship.

On January 8, 2018, Lennon received a call-up for the USMNT for a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina. He did not see the pitch.
