Olave, Espindola
Olave, Espindola, Kimura incoming?
December 2, 2012

SoccerByIves is reporting that Salt Lake will trade Jamison Olave and Fabian Espindola to RBNY for "large amount of allocation money". Stay tuned for details.

Olave, the MLS Defender of the Year in 2010, has spent the last five seasons with Salt Lake. The Colombian defender is 31. Espindola, 27, came to Utah in 2007, but had a brief sojourn in 2009 before returning later that year. The Argentine forward has scored league 35 goals in his six years in MLS, including 19 the last two seasons.

The Oregonian is reporting that Japanese right back Kosuke Kimura is RBNY-bound as well, again for allocation money. The 28-year-old has been in the league since 2007, spending his first five and a half seasons in Colorado before coming over to Portland in the middle of last year.

All three players have won MLS Cups. Both Olave and Kimura have their green cards, so they do not count as internationals in MLS.
