Sporting Kansas City acquired midfielder Erik Thommy from German Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart, through the 2024 Major League Soccer season with a club option for 2025.

The player will occupy an international roster spot once the MLS Secondary Transfer Window officially begins on July 7. The midfielder could then look to make his debut for Sporting Kansas City on July 9 against CF Montreal. 

“This is a big step for me in my career. I have had very good conversations with Peter Vermes and I am excited to join MLS, a league that has developed a lot in the last few years. This club has great fans, great facilities and a great stadium. I want to give my best for the team and I am ready for the challenge,”  Thommy said.

He arrives after managing 42 goals and 33 assists across nine seasons in Germany. 

“Sometimes you have that feeling inside, and my feeling said yes, I want to do it. MLS has developed a lot in the last few years. Sporting has great facilities, great fans, a great stadium and they play attractive football,” Thommy said.
