MLS Trade Central: Orlando City adds Hines on loan

Orlando City signed 28-year-old defender Sebastian Hines on loan from Middlesbrough. He debuted with Middlesbrough when it was still in the Premier League in 2008-09, but it has since played in the League Championship.

Hines had not played for Middlesbrough since last August and spent the fall on loan to League One (third division) Coventry City. He has 17 caps for England youth teams will not occupy an international slot on Orlando City as he is a U.S. citizen by virtue of his father, who is American.

-- Real Salt Lake signed 22-year-old defender Elias Vasquez, who has already played 25 times for Guatemala. He played three seasons for Comunicaciones before moving to Dorados of Mexican second division last summer.

-- Sporting Kansas City waived Honduran World Cup player Jorge Claros, who appeared in eight MLS matches (including postseason) after being acquired last July, and Haitian international James Marcelin, who was acquired by Sporting Kansas City in December from the NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers and appeared in three preseason matches for the club. He had made 39 MLS appearances over two seasons with the Portland Timbers and FC Dallas.
