Sporting Kansas City have loaned out several players, including a few to their own farm club, the Swope Park Rangers. In this monthly recap, we're going to look around and see how every loaned out player is doing.
Erik Palmer Brown- FC Porto
Palmer-Brown has been playing with FC Porto B. He started earning selections in the month of February but did not feature in any matches until Mar. 9, when he earned his first start. Since then, he has become a regular starter with eight matches under his belt. He has participated in four shutouts, earned one yellow card and has not scored a goal yet this season.
FC Porto look at Palmer-Brown as a future investment so the longer he is able to develop with the B team, the better he'll be in the future. FC Porto have an option to buy at the end of the loan when it expires at the end of the calendar year.
Bernardo Anor- Minnesota United FC
If you forgot about Anor being on Sporting KC's roster, you're not the only one. However, he is at least getting some playing time for Minnesota United FC, albeit not a lot so far due to injury. In the four matches that the Loons have played this season, Anor has played in two of them, starting the opening match and then coming on as a sub in their fourth match at halftime. He suffered a concussion in the opening match against of Carolina, which made him miss the two games. He has not contributed an assist or a goal yet this season in his limited time.
As the season progresses, the success of Anor at Minnesota United FC could determine if Sporting KC decide to keep him on in future seasons, or if they decide to cut their losses.
Jon Kempin- Swope Park Rangers
Kempin has been doing exactly what he needs to do: earn full-time playing experience. Kempin has been the starting keeper for the Rangers in all of their matches. So far, the Rangers have allowed six goals in five games, giving Kempin a 1.20 Goals Against Average statistic. He has 17 saves, good for a .739 save percentage. This percentage is lower on the list of starting keepers in USL.
The Rangers are a perfect place for Kempin to develop, since his time with Sporting KC has consisted of him bouncing around from loan to loan without a consistent starting job.
Daniel Salloi- Swope Park Rangers
Salloi has been interesting with the Rangers. He's only earned two starts so far in their five matches but has featured in all five of the matches. He has two goals and two assists to his name and has been a generally decent forward for the Rangers as long as he has good service.
Salloi is another project for Sporting KC that is a decent opportunity to develop him with the Rangers.
Jordi Quintilla- Swope Park Rangers
Quintilla was recently, and a bit surprisingly, loaned out to the Rangers last week and started against Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Not much can be gleaned from one match but he still hasn't been recalled and, with the return of Paulo Nagamura to Sporting KC, Quintilla may be able to stay with the Rangers for a bit.
