Across State Lines: Kuzain Signs with St. Louis

An update on former Kansas City players.

MLS: Columbus Crew at Sporting KC Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Teams in the new MLS NEXT Pro league are starting to fill their rosters with players for the league’s first season this year. That includes future MLS side, St. Louis City SC, who is starting a team in the lower league in preparation for their debut in MLS in 2023. Earlier this week the club announced the first set of signings for their St. Louis City 2 team. Included in that list was former Sporting Kansas City HomeGrown Player Wan Kuzain. Kuzain made six appearances for KC’s first team and scored one goal during his time with KC. He spent last year with Rio Grande Valley FC in the USL Championship. Kuzain will now return to St. Louis, where he played youth soccer before joining Sporting’s academy.

Kuzain will be joined in St. Louis by another former SKC academy player as Ezra Armstrong was also signed by the club. Armstrong spent last year in the Championship as well with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Armstrong never played with the first team but was signed to the original Swope Park Rangers roster in 2016.

Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
