Hohlbein Loaned to Miami FC

The Kansas City Wizards announced Thursday that central defender Aaron Hohlbein has been loaned to Miami FC of the USSF D-2 Pro League for the remainder of the 2010 season. Hohlbein, 24, was selected in the 1st round of the 2007 Supplemental Draft and has played 43 MLS games (41 starts) over the last four seasons. He has scored two career goals and added one assist. Hohlbein has played in two games (one start) in 2010.

Hohlbein will join Miami FC immediately and will be available for Saturday’s match at the Puerto Rico Islanders. Miami is currently bottom of the NASL Conference with a league-worst 32 goals allowed. Hohlbein will look to bring a stabilizing presence to the Miami FC back line.

After signing Greek defender Nick Kounenakis, Kansas City had five center backs on the roster, including Hohlbein. The loan clears a roster spot for Kansas City. Kansas City and Miami FC have loan history, as goalkeeper Eric Kronberg joined Miami FC and helped the team qualify for the playoffs in 2006.
