Atlanta United recalled Jackson Conway from his loan to Phoenix and assigned him for the season to Atlanta United 2. The club announced the move Friday.

Additionally, the club reportedly canceled winger Edwin Mosquera’s loan with Defensa y Justicia. The club hasn’t confirmed that move, which isn’t as easy as putting him back into the first team.

Mosquera was signed as an Under-22 player. MLS teams have three U22 slots. Atlanta United’s are occupied by Erik Lopez, Santiago Sosa and Franco Ibarra. It’s likely that Mosquera will be loaned again to a non-MLS club. Mosquera played 122 minutes with Defensa.

Atlanta United manager Gonzalo Pineda said Friday that the club thought Conway wasn’t playing enough minutes. Conway, a Homegrown signee has played 38 minutes with Phoenix, according to fbref.com. Conway can be recalled from Atlanta United 2 to the first team.
