Silly Season News (Bunbury and Lorenz)

The silly season is still going on and more news is coming out with regards to Sporting KC players. While Shavar Thomas was on trial with Portsmouth, and Stephane Auvray looks to be on his way out of KC, other news is coming out. First is news that Sporting KC's lone Generation Adidas player, Teal Bunbury, has been attracting interest abroad still. Apparently Brondby, of the Danish league has had two offers for Bunbury rejected. The first was for a four day trial for the US international. The second offer was a loan-plus-buy-option deal that Sporting KC also rejected. Brondby finished third in the Danish Superliga last season, and is currently home to another US international, Clarence Goodsen, but it doesn't look like they'll be adding another.

The other news is out going player related, but only on a loan. Scott Lorenz, posted on Twitter today that he was heading to play for NSC Minnesota Stars on loan. Word is that the deal is not finalized as yet, but it only seems a formality that Lorenz will be playing in the NASL for the rest of the Stars season. The Stars are currently fourth in the NASL and are looking to add some depth for the run in to the end of the season. Lorenz made 1 league appearance for KC, starting in the team's second game of the season against Chicago. Lorenz also appeared in both of KC's games in the US Open Cup this year. Good luck to Lorenz in Minnesota.

Good move not agreeing to either of those, we need his depth the rest of the season and his wages aren't large so it's not like loaning him out would really save the books. I don't see him breaking his slump in a week across the pond either, and in that event the offer would be low because it's not like he is displaying he is worth a decent transfer at the current time
