  • Davy Arnaud, Trade

Just when Sporting Kansas City thought they lost defender Seth Sinovic, they get him back. Today Sporting and the Montreal Impact worked out a little deal to send the expansion draft pick back to Kansas City, along with allocation money, for veteran defender Davy Arnuad.

The 31-year old Arnaud, played 10 seasons for Sporting Kansas City after being drafted in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft out of West Texas A&M. His 240 regular season games played are the most all-time in club history. Arnaud scored 43 goals and contributed 35 assists during his time with Sporting Kansas City, figures that rank second and third-most respectively on the club’s all-time scoring charts.

This move seemed like a no brainer to make for both sides. Montreal picked Sinovic last week in the expansion draft and probably tended to use him as trade bait. Grabbing a veteran midfielder like Arnaud seems like a good call to me. He seems like a guy that needed a change of location here to me and this move could end up working well much like the Jack Jewsbury trade did for both Kansas City and Portland a year ago.

 

  • Great move by both teams. I think Arnaud could easily be Marsch’s captain for 2012.
