TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Loan
LAFC's inaugural roster continues to take shape as they added an MLS veteran in the midfield on Tuesday.
Aaron Kovar joins the expansion side from the Seattle Sounders on loan for the 2018 season. The 24-year-old Sounders homegrown has spent four seasons with his hometown club, making 44 appearances across all competitions and scoring three goals. He also made 25 appearances, scoring two goals, with Sounders 2 in USL.
"This is an excellent opportunity for Aaron to gain playing experience and further his development as a player with exposure to another club," said Sounders FC general manager & president of soccer Garth Lagerwey said in a club release. "LAFC provides a new, competitive environment for Aaron and we feel this loan benefits all parties."
Kovar signed with Sounders FC as a Homegrown Player prior to the 2014 season after two standout campaigns at Stanford, where he was the 2012 PAC-12 Freshman of the Year. He joins an LAFC roster that currently touts Carlos Vela, Diego Rossi and Latif Blessing on the wing.
