Free-agent defender Ben Sweat signed a two-year contract through the 2023 season with Sporting Kansas City on Monday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team, however the club revealed it holds an option on Sweat for the 2024 campaign.

“I’m very excited to be joining Sporting KC,” Sweat said. “This is a winning club and organization that is a top team in the league every year. I want to come to Kansas City, work my hardest for the fans and put some silver on my shelves.”

Sweat, 30, has recorded one goal and 11 assists in 96 career MLS matches (84 starts) with the Columbus Crew, New York City FC, Inter Miami CF and Austin FC. He played in two matches with Austin FC in 2021 before sustaining a torn ACL in his left knee.

Sweat also earned two caps for the United States Men’s National Team in October 2018.
