Former Kansas City winger, Soony Saad looks like he could be making a return to MLS. Reports out of Minnesota are reporting that Saad is currently in negotiations with expansion side Minnesota United to return to the league with the club. Saad has spent the last two years in Thailand, playing last season with Pattaya United where he scored nine goals in 28 league appearances for the club. Sporting KC still hold Saad's MLS rights, so a return to MLS would involve United having to negotiate with Sporting KC to acquire his rights.
Elsewhere, three former KC players are set to compete in January's Copa Centroamericana. Recently released Ever Alvarado, who has signed back with his former club, Olimpia, joins Jorge Claros (who recently signed with Real Espana in Honduras) on the Honduran squad. Pablo Punyed is also competing in the tournament with El Salvador. Both teams kick off the tournament in Panama Friday with Honduras taking on Nicaragua and El Salvador playing Costa Rica.
