West Ham loan Winston Reid to MLS side Sporting Kansas City

After a myriad of injuries, Winston Reid is going to have the chance to play first-team football for the first time since 2018.

On Friday evening, Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City announced the acquisition of the New Zealand international on loan.

Reid, who is under contract at West Ham until summer 2023, joined the Hammers in summer 2010 from Midtjylland and has made 223 appearances with the club.

The 31-year-old had also been rumoured with a move to new MLS outfit Nashville SC. Reid will occupy an international slot on SKC’s roster.
