“This is a big step for me in my career,” Thommy said. “I have had very good conversations with Peter Vermes and I am excited to join MLS, a league that has developed a lot in the last few years. This club has great fans, great facilities, and a great stadium. I want to give my best for the team and I am ready for the challenge.”

Thommy will be one of the team’s international roster spots. He needs to receive his International Transfer Certificate and P1 Visa to join Sporting Kansas City.

The German native — who will be 28 on August 20th — appeared in 11 matches for Stuttgart, including 1 start, during the 2021-22 season. He did not score a goal in those 11 matches, according to Soccer Reference.
