Before all the news about the Gold Cup and the stadium came out today, Robb Heineman threw out a little bit of news for Sporting KC fans to start the day. First Heineman tweeted that the team is expecting to announce the signings of Julio Cesar Santos Correa and Milos Stojcev in the next week or so. Santos Correa had missed the last few preseason games as he'd been back in Spain, but was still on the team's radar, he seems like a good candidate to take one of the two starting central defensive positions or KC. Stojcev was a late arrival to camp, plays mainly in the center of midfield or on the left wing. Both have spent most of the preseason playing with the first team in games and it would seem would be expected to contribute this season.
Also today in response to a question by Thad at The Back Post, Heineman said that the team is still working on one more center back and another attacking player. So the team is still trying to improve the central defense, the area of the field that continues to give me worries as the season gets closer. The attacking player would seem to be the max salary midfielder that the team has been chasing for basically the entire offseason. Will be interesting to see if the team can pull off these other two signings.
