Reggae Boyz captain and Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake has welcomed the return of countryman Cory Burke to the Union squad for the rest of the Major League season.

Burke received his visa and work permit earlier this week to enter the United States and departed the island on Tuesday for Pensylvania.

The 28 year old striker had challenges renewing his visa in 2019 and his club, Philadelphia Union subsequently loaned him out to Portmore United and SKN St Polten in Austria.

Blake says burke will be key in the post-season. Burke scored 12 goals in 36 appearances in his first season with the Union in 2018. The Union are currently second in the Eastern Conference standings. The MLS playoffs will kick off in November.
