How would Bryant Ortega fit into Sporting KC?

A young South American midfielder sounds exactly like what they need. But would this even be a first team signing?

Last week we had the first rumor in months as Sporting KC were linked to Bryant Ortega, a 21-year-old midfielder out of Venezuela. On paper that sounds exactly like what this team needs.

A young South American midfielder? Please and thank you.

But is he the answer to Sporting KC’s woes? Or would this even be a signing for the senior squad?

Daniel Sperry of the Kansas City Star joined Shades of Blue in the studio this week to discuss the Ortega rumor and how he might fit in. The guys cover all the big moments from SKC’s loss to Austin FC, argue about Khiry Shelton’s salary, and discuss what this team needs most.

In case you missed it, go back and check out last week’s show as well. It has our full discussion about Peter Vermes and the current state of the club.
