Rosell Officially Signed

About two weeks after Robb Heineman announced on Twitter that former Barcelona B defender, Oriol Rosell, had been signed, the team officially announced the signing of the Spaniard. Unlike at Barcelona where Rosell was listed as a defender, Sporting KC appears to see Rosell more as a midfielder here in the US.  It'll be interesting how he fits in, he could be a replacement for Julio Cesar and/or Paulo Nagamura. 

It'll be interesting to see if Rosell gets any time in league games down the stretch cause while he's come through La Masia, he's still only 20 years old and only made a handful of appearances for Barcelona's B team in the Spanish second division.
