The Chicago Fire confirmed Tuesday it has traded midfielder and captain Dax McCarty to expansion side Nashville SC.

McCarty played three seasons with the Fire, arriving via trade from the New York Red Bulls.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"We are entering a new cycle with the team's roster," Fire president/general manager Nelson Rodríguez said in a team statement. "Dax helped us through an important stage in the club's history and he will be remembered among our fans' most favorite players. We wish Dax and his family all the best with their new opportunity in Nashville."

The Fire received $50,000 in 2020 general allocation money and $50,000 in targeted allocation money as well as a second-round draft pick in 2021 for McCarty, 32.

"Chicago will always hold a special place in my heart," McCarty wrote on Twitter. " ... I leave with nothing but gratitude to the dedicated fans who supported us week in, week out, no matter what."
