AMSTERDAM — Danish giants Brøndby have had a pair of overtures for Sporting Kansas City forward Teal Bunbury soundly rejected, MLSsoccer.com has learned.

According to multiple sources, the 10-time SAS Liga champs initially requested the chance to invite the US international to Denmark for a four-day trial and were rebuffed. Unfazed, Brøndby then attempted to initiate talks of a loan-plus-buy-option deal, but Sporting again would hear none of it.

Both Sporting KC and Bunbury's agent have declined to comment.

The Canadian-born 21-year-old, who is in his second MLS season, did train with EPL outfit Stoke City this winter. Bunbury has to date notched eight goals and four assists in 43 league appearances, to go along with one goal in his two USMNT caps.
