Career Summary

Contract option declined on Dec. 9, 2020

Reid is a vastly experienced center back who is one of the best players in New Zealand soccer history. He will be looking to regain his form after a long injury layoff.

INTERNATIONAL: Holding dual citizenship in his native New Zealand as well as Denmark, Reid represented Denmark at the U-19, U-20 and U-21 levels between 2007-2010. In early 2010, however, he committed his senior international career to New Zealand and was selected to the All Whites squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Reid was an ever-present fixture in central defense as New Zealand famously finished the World Cup group stage unbeaten with three draws -- including a 1-1 stalemate against defending world champion Italy -- despite falling short of the knockout rounds. He also scored his lone New Zealand goal to date at the tournament, heading home a stunning stoppage-time equalizer in a 1-1 tie versus Slovakia. He most recently featured for New Zealand in a friendly against Ireland last November.

OUTSIDE MLS: Reid arrives in Kansas City after logging over 300 club appearances in Denmark and England, including 166 Premier League matches with West Ham.
