Sporting Kansas City recently opened a new stadium, and has now added another big-money player to help please the fans at Livestrong Sporting Park.

Sporting KC announced the signing of Brazilian playmaker Jeferson from Brazilian club Vasco de Gama. Jeferson joins Omar Bravo as one of two Designated Players on Sporting KC's roster, along with Omar Bravo.

“We are excited to have gotten Jéferson based on the fact that he is a player with the attacking qualities that can really help our team with the final pass and also scoring goals,” Sporting KC head coach Peter Vermes said. “This is an area where we continue to want to improve, and this is an excellent addition with his pedigree of playing in Brazil."

Jeferson joined Vasco de Gama in 2009 after helping Santo Andre gain promotion to the Brazilian First Division. He hasn't played for Vasco de Gama, having most recently scored four goals in eight games while on loan with Avai.

Jeferson, 27, will join Sporting Kansas City on loan for the rest of the season.
