Sporting KC Signs Goalkeeper Parker Siegfried on Loan
Sporting Kansas City announced today that the club has signed goalkeeper Parker Siegfried on loan from USL Championship side Louisville City FC after acquiring Siegfried's college protected rights from New York City FC in exchange for a natural 2023 MLS SuperDraft third round pick.
Siegfried, 24, has joined Sporting on loan for the 2021 season on a semi-guaranteed contract for the year.
A native of Granville, Ohio, Siegfried developed in the Columbus Crew SC Academy and represented the United States at the U-14, U-15 and U-18 youth international levels. He then embarked on a successful college career at Ohio State University, where he logged 72 career appearances and climbed to fourth on the school's all-time shutout chart with 18 clean sheets. During his time at Ohio State, Siegfried also played two seasons for amateur club Asheville City SC in the National Premier Soccer League.
New York City FC selected Siegfried with the 74th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2020 MLS SuperDraft, but he did not sign with the club. He spent the first half of 2020 in USL League One with South Georgia Tormenta FC before joining Detroit City FC, where he helped the team to the National Independent Soccer Association fall title last October. Siegfried signed for two-time USL Cup champion Louisville in March following a preseason trial with the team.
Sporting will open their highly anticipated 2021 MLS season on Saturday, visiting the New York Red Bulls at 7 p.m. CT with live coverage on Bally Sports Kansas City, Bally Sports Midwest Plus, FOX Sports GO, Sports Radio 810 WHB and La Grande 1340 AM.
