Cyrus Gone From Camp, Not Being Signed

Trinidad and Tobago youth international, Daneil Cyrus is now gone from camp with Kansas City. Cyrus did not play in the team's double header against Portland and Montreal last weekend and was again not in the lineup last night when KC took on the Arizona Sahuaros. There'd been no word on what had happened to him but some were speculating that he was gone. Now we have confirmation of that as he's now back in his home country playing in the local league.

According to the article it looks like the move fell through when it came to discuss salary according to 1st Santa Rosa's coach, Keith Look Loy; "...the offer from the club was not accepted. They liked the player very much and agreed that he could be a big asset to them this season, but the numbers (were not) adding up."

With Cyrus gone from camp, that leaves Matt Besler, Mike Jones, Shavar Thomas and trialists Omar Colley and Julio Cesar Santos Correa. Santos Correa though did not play last weekend either and is apparently back in Spain at this time, but is still being looked at for a roster spot. Should KC lose out on Santos Correa as well, it's another blow for KC. Already fans are questioning the additions on defense as not being enough to upgrade from the problems that plagued the central of defense last year, and if Santos Correa isn't signed I don't think many fans are going to feel comfortable with Besler-Thomas partnership. Even if Santos Correa is signed there are still going to be a lot of questions asked of the upgrades the team has done.

This seems curious given the team has so much salary cap space available. I hope their max salary cap guy works out or we could be in a pickle.
