Well, after a brief stint as a Loon, Femi Hollinger-Janzen is heading back to his original team.

The forward, who joined Minnesota United FC via the Expansion Draft in December, will swap places with former teammate New England Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, United announced Wednesday,

Shuttleworth, a 29-year-old Tonawanda, N.Y., native, has played for the Revolution for eight seasons, including the team's 2014 Major League Soccer Cup final appearance. He's made 127 appearances, 124 starts, 34 shutouts and 344 saves with a 46-53-28 regular season record.

Hollinger-Janzen, spent his rookie 2016 season withe the Revs, making nine appearances and one start for two goals and an assist. The third-round pick out of Indiana has spent the preseason with Minnesota in Arizona and Portland. He picked up a foot injury in Arizona and hasn't featured much since.

Hollinger-Janzen was also college teammates with midfielder Tanner Thompson, who United drafted this year.

The move adds some more veteran depth to the goalkeepers, with John Alvbage, Patrick McLain and draftee Alec Ferrell. The Loons also have a very stacked attack and make a little room up there.

The Revs and United played to a 1-1 draw in Arizona in January, but Shuttleworth and Hollinger-Janzen didn't play.
