It looks like Sporting Kansas City has landed Spanish midfielder Jordi Quintillà. We knew the deal was close but sources confirm that the deal is complete and Quintillà received his P1 Visa this morning so he is cleared to join the team. It is unknown if his ITC (International Transfer Certificate) has been received yet but that is normally not an issue.

Quintillà may be the only signing of this window which closes at 4:00 PM CT Thursday. Sources indicated that Sporting KC is still working on some deals but none were close or seemed likely to complete in this window. The MLS trade window also closes at that time but MLS teams can still sign players who are currently out of contract.

Quintillà came out of the famed Barcelona academy and most recently played in the the French second division for AC Ajaccio. Jordi and former SKC midfieler Uri Rosell were team mates at Barcelona.
