Former Sporting KC midfielder Oriol Rosell has found the going hard since his move to Portugal in the summer of 2014. After being a regular contributor in his first season with Sporting CP, Rosell has found himself out of favor and has yet to appear this season for them. Speculation this summer was that Rosell would return to MLS and Kansas City, but that move never materialized. Now the rumors of Rosell's return to MLS are back but a different club this time. Reports out of Portugal have Rosell joining the New England Revolution, who have a partnership with the Portuguese club. To get Rosell though the Revolution would likely need to trade up in the allocation order. Currently the Revolution are 10th and would need nine other clubs to pass on Rosell for the Revs to land him. For what it is worth Sporting KC is one spot behind the Revs at 11th.
Also this week, Jorge Claros may have a new club soon. Claros had played in China this last season after being released by Sporting KC in preseason. Claros has been training with Olimpia in Honduras and looks like he may sign for them ahead of the Clausura season.
Here's the rest of this week's update on a limited week with the majority of former players either in their offseason or on break.
