Atlanta United update, Day 3

What a day in the world of Atlanta United. We’ll do our best to get you caught up on the day that was.

The day opened with a bit of news:

Anton Walkes joins United on a six-month loan from Tottenham. The 19-year-old can play anywhere on the backline or in defensive midfield. He featured for Spurs’ first team over the summer in the International Champions Cup and once in the EFL Cup this season. He has mostly played for the club’s reserve team this year.

After the flurry of activity, the team did hit the field for training this afternoon in their only field session of the day:

Tomorrow, the team trains in the morning at 10:00 a.m. at the IMG Academy.
