Sporting Kansas City announced on Monday that the club has signed its first pick from the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft, defender Shawn Singh.
"I'm very excited to be a part of Sporting Kansas City," Singh said in a statement. "I have nothing but the best to say about the entire coaching staff and organization. I enjoy the style of soccer that is played here and I look forward to a great season with the club."
Singh made two appearances for KC this preseason, earning an assist in KC's 5-1 win over Tucson FC and drawing a penalty kick against the U.S. U-17 men's national team.
The UCLA product fits the team's style of play, according to manager Peter Vermes. Singh will compete with Korede Aiyegbusi as the third-option leftback.
