Sporting KC parts ways with midfielders Jorge Claros and James Marcelin

Sporting Kansas City announced on Tuesday that the club has waived midfielder James Marcelin and mutually agreed to part ways with midfielder Jorge Claros.

Claros appeared in eight MLS matches (including postseason) and four games during the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League group stage since being acquired by Sporting Kansas City last July. The 29-year-old played at the 2008 Summer Olympics and 2014 FIFA World Cup as a member of the Honduras Men’s National Team.

Marcelin was acquired by Sporting Kansas City in December and appeared in three preseason matches for the club. The 28-year-old has twice represented Haiti at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, as well as in Olympic and World Cup qualifying, and has 39 career MLS appearances over two seasons with the Portland Timbers and FC Dallas.

Claros and Marcelin have been removed from Sporting Kansas City’s roster, making available two international roster spots. To view a complete list of Sporting Kansas City transactions in 2015, visit
