Quintilla Joins Puerto Rico, Davis Rejoining Houston - Former SKC Wizards Update

Jordi Quintilla's search for a new club is over, this past week the former Kansas City midfielder signed a deal with NASL side Puerto Rico FC. The NASL side will compete in their first full season in the NASL after competing in just the Fall Season in 2016. Quintilla's first taste of club soccer since being waived by Sporting KC though will come in international competition as Puerto Rico FC will host their group in the CFU Club Championships. Puerto Rico will host Transvaal of Suriname, Scholars International of the Cayman Islands, and Portmore United of Jamaica in mid-March with the group winner advancing to the final round with six other group winners and Central FC of Trinidad. The top four teams from that phase will advance to this year's CONCACAF Champions League.

Elsewhere, former Kansas City midfielder is rejoining his former club, the Houston Dynamo. Davis spent 10 seasons with the Dynamo before spending the 2016 season with Sporting KC. Davis retired following the 2016 season but will sign a one day contract with the Dynamo to allow him to retire as a member of the club he's best remembered for playing for.

Emmanuel Appiah has been playing with the New England Revolution this pre-season. I have no idea what kind of contract he has, if any but I remembered seeing his name in the recap of the Sporting pre-season scrimmage and then went and checked and he played in the Revs most recent game against the Dynamo as well.
