Sporting KC Closing in on Re-Signing Dwyer

In a week that say the team trade two long serving and well liked players in Aurelien Collin and CJ Sapong, and saw the departure of play-by-play man, Callum Williams, Sporting KC fans really needed some good news this week. Fans finally got some tonight thanks to a Tweet from team president, Robb Heineman.

While it doesn't appear to be 100% quite yet, based on the Tweet from Heineman, is seems it'd be a shock if Dom Dwyer is not re-signed to a new contract soon by the club. According to Heineman's Tweet, there are apparently still some agent details to work out, but "Dwyer will b in kc 4 3 more (at least)."

This was certainly a much needed step for Kansas City and for Dwyer. What it does for KC, is that it not only locks down their team's main forward and single season record holder, but it also means that if Dwyer continues his goal scoring form that he showed in the 2014 season, and a team in England or Europe comes calling, the price for his services goes up.

For Dwyer, re-signing will likely see him get a decent pay bump from his salary last year, which had a base of $80,000 and a guaranteed compensation of $92,500 per the players union. Hopefully he can continue his goal scoring form.
