According to Press Release sent out today by the Kansas City Wizards, Forward Scott Sealy will now play for San Jose. In return KC gets some allocation money. No word on how much money.
(July 14, 2008) – The Kansas City Wizards acquired allocation money Monday from the San Jose Earthquakes for forward Scott Sealy. Sealy, 27, joined the Wizards as a 1st round pick in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft out of Wake Forest University. Sealy has two goals in 13 games this season.
“We would like to thank Scott Sealy for his three plus years of service to the Wizards organization,” Technical Director Peter Vermes said. “We wish him the best in San Jose and with the rest of his career.”
Sealy, a native of Chaguanas, Trinidad, scored 28 goals in 88 games (65 starts) over the last four seasons for Kansas City. He has represented Trinidad and Tobago 22 times in his international career, scoring two goals.
Transaction: Kansas City Wizards acquire allocation money from San Jose Earthquakes for forward Scott Sealy.
Scott Sealy seemed to perform much better as the support striker in his time here. With the return of Josh Wolff it seemed that Scott and Josh would be joining forces again up top, but alas, it is not to be.
This opens yet another International spot for KC. We now only have 4 International players. Could KC be getting Carlos Ruiz from LA? I know a lot of fans hope not. Or maybe KC has their eye on a player from the Hungarian league as Peter Vermes has recently visited there. The transfer window also opens tomorrow, July 15th. I believe it closes August 15th(don’t quote me on that!).
Time will tell if this deal will pay off.
