Local Media Reporting Blessing Deal to KC Done

Similar to a few days ago when Portuguese media reported that Gerso Fernandes' move to Sporting KC was basically done, reports in Ghana are that Latif Blessing's move to Sporting KC is a done deal. Blessing, the golden boot winner and MVP for the Ghanaian Premier League will reportedly be turning down a move to Ajax Cape Town in South Africa to sign with Sporting KC.

The reports in Ghana are that Blessing has signed a three year deal with Sporting KC, with an option on a fourth year pending his passing of a medical. Blessing scored 17 goals for Liberty Professionals this past season and has reportedly been named to the provisional squad for Ghana ahead of January's African Cup of Nations.

Blessing, a winger looks to have some decent speed and still not being 20 continues Peter Vermes' strategy of getting younger and faster on the wings for KC. He'll hopefully be able to convert his game to MLS, but I'm still hesitant to say he's the answer to the secondary goal scorer question that KC fans have been asking of KC since the club sold Krisztian Nemeth.

The news internationally about Blessing and Fernandes being signed would seem to go hand and hand with the news that Robb Heineman tweeted out earlier tonight about two other players being done. Until shown otherwise I'm assuming Heineman is referring to Blessing and Fernandes.
