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

games.

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.
