Sporting KC loans 4 players to Orlando City
Sporting Kansas City has agreed to loan four of the MLS club’s
players to Orlando City, the team’s new minor league affiliate in
the USL Pro league.
Goalkeeper Jon Kempin, defender Yann Sango’o, midfielder
Christian Duke and forward Dom Dwyer were to join Orlando City on
Thursday to prepare for that club’s season opener April 7.
Sporting KC reached a two-year agreement with Orlando City in
January, providing an avenue for players who don’t see regular
action with Sporting KC to get meaningful time in competitive
Orlando City has won the Commissioner’s Cup the past two years
for the best regular-season record in its league. The club will
also participate in the U.S. Open Cup, a tournament that Sporting
KC won last season.
