KANSAS CITY - The Kansas City Current announced today that the club has agreed to transfer Rachel Corsie to Aston Villa of the English Super League and Jéssica Silva to Benfica of the Portuguese Campeonato Nacional Feminino. Per club policy, terms of the agreements will not be disclosed.

Rachel Corsie was one of the original players assigned to Kansas City's expansion roster from the former Utah Royals in December 2020. She appeared in 18 games for Kansas City in 2021, starting 17. The veteran defender joined the NWSL in 2015 with the Seattle Reign, making 44 appearances for the club, including the 2015 NWSL Championship game. After a short loan to Glasgow City in 2017, Corsie signed with the Royals for the 2018 season.

Jéssica Silva was signed by Kansas City before the start of the 2021 regular season. She started five games for Kansas City in 2021 and provided a spark off the bench in an additional nine games for a total of 548 minutes. The speedy forward now returns to Europe where she has played across the continent's premiere divisions, including Swedish side Linköpings FC, Portugal's Clube de Albergaria, Spanish Premier Division Levante Unión Deportiva and Olympique Lyonnaise (OL) of the French Division 1 Féminine.

With Silva's transfer, the Kansas City Current now have two open international slots as the team prepares to open preseason training on Feb. 1. The 2022 NWSL Challenge Cup kicks off the weekend of March 18. For tickets and information, visit KansasCityCurrent.com.
