Sporting KC signs Supplemental Draft pick Shawn Singh

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.
