LOUISVILLE (February 5, 2018) – Louisville City Football Club has transferred midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye to MLS side LAFC, the club announced today. Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
“We’re obviously really pleased that Mark-Anthony has been able to get this opportunity,” said head coach James O’Connor. “He’s worked very hard throughout his time here and I think it’s important that we thank him for all his efforts. He’s a great young man and is someone we hope goes on to have a long and successful career in MLS.”
