Sporting Kansas City’s Homegrown players are returning home, at least for now. Both Erik Palmer-Brown and Daniel Salloi were on loan and those loans are now over.
Salloi, the International Homegrown forward was originally loaned to Sporting KC’s USL team, the Swope Park Rangers where he scored four goals and three assists in ten appearances. Salloi was then loaned to Hungarian side Vasas SC but quickly moved to Gyirmot SE under former SKC Academy coach István Urbányi.
Salloi struggled with a back injury but scored twice for newly promoted Gyirmot SE, leading the team in goals during his time there.
Palmer-Brown spent most the year on loan, becoming the regular starting center back for FC Porto’s B team. Palmer-Brown helped lead FC Porto B to their first LigaPro championship to finish off the 2015-16 season.
Palmer-Brown missed part of the early 2016-17 season with a foot injury but made six more league starts and earned his first professional goal versus Leicester City’s U-23 squad in the Premier League International Cup.
Palmer-Brown was the third Homegrown player signed for Sporting Kanss City and Salloi was the fourth.
With as much time as Palmer-Brown was seeing for Porto it was expected they would make a move to acquire him from Sporting Kansas City. It appears there was interest in signing Palmer-Brown but Porto was unable to fit him within their budget. They could always approach Sporting KC at a later time
