Former Kansas City midfielder, Servando Carrasco will be staying in Orlando City next season. Reports in Orlando this past week were that the out of contract player would be re-signing with the club. There'd been questions about his return as his wife, Orlando Pride forward, Alex Morgan had signed to go on loan to Lyon in France. Carraso will be returning to Orlando though where he played in 31 games in 2016, starting 21 of them.
I've also updated the list of players currently without a club to include all MLS players that are out of contract with their club, or had their options declined. The list will obviously shrink as players sign new contracts with clubs for the 2017 season.
Here's the rest of this week's limited update due to a lack of games with the holidays.
