U.S. U-17 staff reunited at Chivas USA

[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Chivas USA made Paul Grafer the final addition to its technical staff as he joins the Goats as goalkeeper coach. He joins Paul Caffrey as an assistant under new Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera. They all worked in similar capacities with the U.S. U-17 men’s national team during Cabrera's tenure that included trips to the 2009 and 2011 Under-17 World Cup finals.
A College of William & Mary product, Grafer played six seasons with the Colorado Rapids and MetroStars. Cabrera, Caffrey and Grafer were all teammates on the USL Long Island Rough Riders.

MEDRANDA DEAL COMPLETED. Sporting Kansas City concluded the purchase of young Colombian midfielder Jimmy Medranda for an undisclosed transfer fee from Deportivo Pereira. He joined Sporting KC on loan last August.
"Jimmy is a good, young talent with a lot of potential," SKC manager Peter Vermes said. "It was a goal of ours to try to re-sign him at the end of this season as a Sporting Kansas City player as opposed to being on loan. We're excited to have been able to accomplish that goal."
Medranda, 19, was part of the second youngest roster in Major League Soccer last season with Sporting KC and made his MLS debut in September at Sporting Park, becoming the youngest player to appear in a game for the club in 2013.
Medranda arrived in Kansas City on Monday and will travel with the team to Orlando on Friday for the 2014 Disney Pro Soccer Classic that begins next week.
