Kansas City, KS ( - Sporting Kansas City announced Thursday that the club has signed Hungarian striker Krisztian Nemeth. Nemeth will occupy an international roster spot on the team's roster for the 2015 season pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.

"Krisztian is a player who has extensive experience playing in a 4-3-3 (system)," Sporting head coach Peter Vermes said. "He also fits well in the overall model of play for Sporting Kansas City and we look forward to his adaptation."

Nemeth's professional career began at age 15 when he signed with 23-time Hungarian champions MTK Budapest in 2005. As an 18-year-old, Nemeth joined Liverpool and made a strong impact as a reserve player but failed to make an appearance with the first-team.

Following loan spells at Blackpool and AEK Athens, Nemeth made the switch to Olympiakos in 2010 before heading out on loan to Olympiacos Volos, MTK Budapest and RKC Waalwijk. He eventually settled at Roda JC Kerkrade where he scored 10 goals in 44 league appearances from the start of the 2012 season.
