FC Kansas City's midfield got a big boost Monday when they announced they were bringing Desiree Scott back. The Canadian National team player will again be an allocated player to the Blues.

"I am beyond excited to be heading back to Kansas City where my professional career began," Scott said via press release. "I have been following the team's success over the last two seasons and only hope to be a great addition to the squad to help bring home another championship. I'm really looking forward to head back to the NWSL, meet the girls and get ready for an exciting season ahead."

Scott was one of the Blues allocated players the first season when she became known for being a destroyer in midfield. She started and played every minute for the Blues helping the Blues to make the playoffs. In the off season she moved to Notts County Ladies FC in the British FA WSL.

"Des [Scott] played a huge part in helping us establish the FC Kansas City culture in the league's inaugural season," Director of Soccer Operations and General Manager Huw Williams said via press release. "We have stayed in contact with her since she left and both parties have followed each other's fortunes. We welcome her back with open arms and are very excited to see her in an FCKC uniform again."

With the World Cup in Canada last year, Scott sat out from league play to prepare with Canada for the tournament.

The Blues lost a lot of talent in retirements after again winning the NWSL Championship last season. With the possibility of Jen Buczkowski only playing a half season, having Scott back will reinforce the defensive mid spot for the defending champions.
