Across State Lines: De Jong Gets New Contract

An update on former Kansas City players.

Soccer: 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifyer-El Salvador at Canada Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Marcel De Jong’s time with Sporting Kansas City did not go well for the Canadian international, brought in as competition for Seth Sinovic at left back before the 2015 season, De Jong played in just 13 games, starting 11 and playing just 847 minutes for KC. He was let go after the season and after a short stop with the Ottawa Fury, signed with the Vancouver Whitecaps. De Jong has since been a solid contributor for the Whitecaps, appearing in 28 games, starting 22 of those games. His contribution has earned him a contract extension. His contract was extended through the end of the 2019 season with an option for the 2020 season.

Here is the rest of this week’s update.
