Orlando City SC acquires forward Dom Dwyer from Sporting Kansas City in exchange for $400,000 in General Allocation Money and $500,000 in Targeted Allocation Money, plus up to $700,000 in future Allocation Money based on the player’s performance.“Our group has worked hard to find potential additions to the Club and we are thrilled to finalize this deal and add an important piece to the roster in Dom,” Orlando City SC CEO Alex Leitão said.
“Dom is a fantastic player who recently gave us a glimpse of what he is capable of with the U.S. Men’s National Team and will keep doing so with the Club and at the MLS All-Star game next week.”Dwyer is coming off a record-setting performance in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup with the U.S. men's national team.
After becoming a United States citizen in March, Dwyer scored 19 minutes into his U.S. debut on July 1 against Ghana. The former University of South Florida Bull then scored on July 8 against Panama, becoming the 10th player in National Team history to score in each of his first two matches.
“Dom adds tremendous strength to our attack. He brings speed, energy and strong technical ability,” General Manager Niki Budalic added. “He has grown as a player over the years into one who is a threat whenever he’s on the field.”
