Orlando City acquire Team USA striker Dwyer in record deal

Dom Dwyer returns to Orlando City

Orlando City has completed a record $A2 million swoop for Sporting Kansas City striker Dom Dwyer.

Originally, the trade that sent Dwyer to Orlando City SC on Tuesday would've also included Sporting KC acquiring Columbus' coveted spot in the allocation order, the sources said.

This deal has been seemingly years in the works, as Orlando City has made it no secret since 2015 that they want Dwyer on board.

They will have at least nine games together to improve an offense that has scored the third-fewest goals (22) in MLS and get the Lions into the playoffs for the first time in its three seasons. I don't know that we do.

"Dom has been a great player on the field and a tremendous ambassador off of it for this organization", Kansas City coach Peter Vermes said in a statement. He ranks second on the team with five goals this season, and he's scored 57 goals in 128 games during his MLS career.

Because Sporting KC received a transfer fee in return for Nemeth, he must go through the MLS allocation process before returning to the league. Sporting KC wanted no part of having Dwyer play out his contract, which would mean losing him for nothing if he made a move outside MLS, and instead chose to trade him for a record haul of allocation money while his trade value was high.

"Our group has worked hard to find potential additions to the club and we are thrilled to finalise this deal and add an important piece to the roster in Dom", Orlando City CEO Alex Leitao said.

SKC loaned Dwyer to Orlando City's USL team in 2013. The couple lives with their infant son Cassius in the Kansas City area.

Dwyer, 26, became a USA citizen in March and later in the summer scored in his first two matches for the USMNT, including a goal in the Gold Cup opener against Panama. Egan's only goal was in 1993, four years before she married Reyna. He also attended the nearby University of South Florida after transferring from a junior college following his arrival in the United States from England.

The 26-year-old became a US Citizen in March and scored 19 minutes into his global debut for the U.S. on July 1.
