FC Cincinnati claims goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer off waivers

ORLANDO – FC Cincinnati is bolstering its depth at the goalkeeping position after the Friday acquisition of Kenneth Vermeer.

Vermeer, 35, of the Netherlands, will join FC Cincinnati, which completed a waiver-claim acquisition of the player on Friday, according to Major League Soccer sources. 

Vermeer played a significant role in Los Angeles FC's 2020 season, starting eight league matches in addition to five Concacaf Champions League matches including the final.

Vermeer and LAFC mutually agreed to terminate the player's contract earlier this month.

Vermeer's addition to an FC Cincinnati goalkeeping corps, which already included an injured Przemysław Tytoń, Cody Cropper, Ben Lundt and Beckham Sunderland, isn't expected to alter the club's plans for its match on Saturday at Orlando City.
