FC Cincinnati will have a plethora of players to select in Tuesday afternoon’s Expansion Draft.
Among players available are LA Galaxy midfielder Perry Kitchen, Los Angeles FC defender Steven Beitashour, and Orlando City midfielder Sacha Kljestan.
Atlanta United defender Michael Parkhurst and LAFC midfielder Benny Feilhaber are other notable names on the list. The two of them, however, are free agents and wouldn’t necessarily go to Cincinnati should they be selected.
FC Cincinnati will be able to select up to five players in the draft, but they cannot select more than one player from the same team. The Columbus Crew, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders, Sporting Kansas City, and Toronto FC will not lose a player since they each lost someone to Los Angeles FC in last year’s expansion draft.
The Portland Timbers also have nothing to worry about. They reportedly have a deal in place with FC Cincinnati to prevent any of their players from being taken. This is likely a clause in the trade that sent forward Fanendo Adi to Cincinnati over the summer.
As was the case last year, Homegrown players and Generation Adidas graduates were automatically protected. Designated players were not, however. Also, players with no-trade clauses had to be included on a team’s protected list.
