Sporting Kansas City has traded Diego Rubio to the Colorado Rapids and in exchange have acquired midfielder Kelyn Rowe, $100,000 in Targeted Allocation Money and $200,000 in General Allocation Money.

”Kelyn is a player who we watched in college and we have continued to pay close attention to him over the years in Major League Soccer,” Sporting KC Manager Peter Vermes said via press release. “He’s a guy that we have always admired from afar and someone we think that can play multiple positions as a midfielder or as a winger. We are very excited to add him to our roster. We also want to thank Diego for his contributions to our team over the last three seasons, and we wish him the best in the future.”

Rowe has 30 goals and 42 assists in 214 appearances in MLS action for New England and can play multiple positions in Sporting KC’s formation.

Rowe was traded from the New England Revolution to the Colorado Rapids for Edgar Castillo earlier in the day.

”I am excited for the opportunity to be involved in an organization that has proven time and time again to be at the top of this league in terms of style of play, facilities and the culture in Kansas City,” Rowe said via press release.
