More Moves Coming for Sporting

Not long after the announcement regarding the trade that brought Benny Feilhaber to KC, Robb Heineman was at it again posting again on Twitter tonight that more moves are on the way.

Two more moves are on the way tomorrow, as KC is really stating their intentions towards the 2013 season.  KC is really going all in this year it looks like, not only looking to compete to win MLS Cup, but also add depth that will contribute for the team's run in 3 separate competitions next season (league, US Open Cup, and CONCACAF Champions' League).

One name that has come up for the last little bit, and a name that I thought could have been the announcement today is Claudio Bieler.  Bieler, the LDU Quito forward has been linked with a move to MLS for few weeks now, specifically Kansas City.  The biggest thing for KC with Bieler is his experience.  Bieler has experience in the Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, and even the FIFA Club World Cup while playing with the Ecuadorian club.  He played in the FIFA Club World Cup final in 2008 against Manchester United.  He left Quito and went back to his native Argentina to Racing, but eventually made his way back to Quito.  Since moving back to Quito, Bieler has scored about every other game. Which is a very good strike rate no matter the league.  Hopefully he can help finish some more of the chances that KC create. 

That all said, I'm not sure that Bieler will be either of the announcements tomorrow.  I think it may still be a little while before this deal is made official.

I'm guessing Besler new contract is one of the moves.
