FC Kansas City transfer Scott to Notts County FC

Desiree Scott will be going to England to play for Notts County FC - Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

FC Kansas City and the NWSL complete transfer to Notts County FC

FC Kansas City and the NWSL have transferred Desiree Scott to Notts County FC in England.

"We are disappointed to lose a player of Desiree's quality but we wish her all the best with her new club and know that our team is building a roster that can once again challenge for the league title," FC Kansas City head coach Vlatko Andonovski said via press release.

Sources close to the situation report that FC Kansas City is receiving a significant transfer fee (for women's soccer) and are satisfied with the result.

When Scott was originally signed by Notts County FC in early January it was a surprise to both FC Kansas City and the NWSL.  Scott and fellow Canadian international Lauren Sesselmann were both considered to be under contract by the league. The players and their agent maintained that they were not.

Privately, sources within the team have consistently stated they would like to have Scott back but if she wanted to go elsewhere they would just look for fair compensation.

Sesselmann was taken by the Houston Dash in the expansion draft and there is no word on whether that situation has been resolved.
