Deadline day for much England and other parts of Europe finally brought a conclusion to the question of where former Sporting Kansas City homegrown player, Erik Palmer-Brown is headed. Long reported to have signed a pre-contract with Manchester City, no announcement was made when Palmer-Brown’s contract with Sporting and MLS expired after the end of 2017. Reports came out of loaning him to PSV Eindhoven and then loaning him elsewhere for 2018 and then loaning him there in the 2018-2019 season. Today Palmer-Brown’s landing spot was known with a move to KV Kortrijk in the Belgian league. No announcement was ever made by Manchester City about signing the US youth international, but Kortrijk’s announcement of the signing says he is on loan from Manchester City.

In other news this week, Atlanta United waived one former Kansas City player, Jacob Peterson and signed another, signing free agent Sal Zizzo, who had been with the New York Red Bulls last season.
