Rumor Central: Teal Bunbury being pursued by a Swedish club? No way, he says | THE SIDELINE

Teal Bunbury was headed for a second division club in Sweden. That was late morning-to-early afternoon, depending upon where in the United States or Canada you live, Friday.

Teal Bunbury was not headed for Sweden, and in fact, Sporting Kansas City have not even been contacted by a club in Sweden about Teal Bunbury, according to assistant coach Kerry Zavagnin. That was still late morning-to-early afternoon, depending upon where in the United States or Canada you live, Friday.

As they often do this time of year — "silly season," which ramps up even more when the Major League Soccer summer transfer window opens on July 9 — the 'Teal Bunbury to a second division Swedish club' had been hatched, pupalized and exited the coccoon, just like that.

"Sweden? This is the first I've heard of it," Bunbury told MLSsoccer.com with a laugh on Friday. "I mean, if my agent's doing something behind my back, but he wouldn't do that. So no, nonexistent."
