We may still be waiting for another regular season D.C. United match, but there is undoubtedly enough soccer news to keep us busy!
Jon Kempin is on loan to San Diego Loyal FC through the end of June. Kempin joined the Black-and-Red at the beginning of 2021 and has made 13 appearances since, so this is an excellent chance for him to get some more minutes.
Rumors abound about whether Griffin Yow will be on the move soon. Brian Sciaretta dug into a potential transfer that would see the homegrown player head to Belgian club KVC Westerlo.
I am hearing that DC United and KVC Westerlo are in discussions over a transfer that would send teenage homegrown attacker and former U.S. U-17 winger Griffin Yow, 19, to the newly promoted Belgian club. No deal as of yet.

Just to update on the Griffin Yow transfer. Discussions are still ongoing. I understand that it will be a free transfer built almost entirely performances bonuses and a significant sell %. While it’s not done yet, Yow is hopeful the deal agreed to as opposed to other options.
