Midfielder traded to Boston in exchange for draft picks

CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars announced today that the club has traded midfielder Amanda Da Costa to the Boston Breakers. In exchange, the Red Stars will be receiving their natural third (No. 28 overall) and fourth-round (No. 38 overall) picks, previously given to Boston in exchange for Stephanie McCaffrey in July.

“We can’t thank Amanda enough for all she did with us here in Chicago,” said Red Stars head coach Rory Dames. “In just the short amount of time we were able to have her, Amanda did a great deal for the Red Stars. I wish nothing but the best for Amanda in Boston and in the UEFA Women’s EURO in 2017.”

Da Costa came to the Red Stars for the 2016 season after being acquired from the Washington Spirit. Despite nagging injuries throughout the season, she played in 13 games and made eight starts.
