Nashville SC acquire international roster slot ahead of summer transfer window

Nashville SC have acquired a 2023 and 2024 international roster spot from Sporting Kansas City for $270,000 in 2024 General Allocation Money (GAM), the club announced on Monday.

This is the second international slot Nashville have acquired in 2023. Towards the close of the Primary Transfer Window, the ‘Yotes sent $175,000 in GAM to FC Cincinnati for a spot. The move gives Nashville at least two open international spots to work with, potentially three (we expect to have more information shortly and will update this story accordingly).

The Secondary Transfer Window opens on July 5. This window coincides with the global summer transfer window, the primary time when clubs around the world buy and sell players. Nashville have historically targeted the summer window as the primary time to bring in high-level attackers. Designated Players Hany Mukhtar, Randall Leal, Jhonder Cádiz and Aké Loba were all signed in the summer window.

After mutually terminating Aké Loba’s contract, Nashville have an open DP spot to work with, as well as one U22 Initiative slot. If Nashville sign a Young DP with their open DP spot, they will gain an additional two U22 Initiative slots. Nashville are widely expected to sign a DP attacker this summer.
