In return, the Fire are expected to receive Lions defender Rafael Ramos and an unspecified amount of allocation money. The report also states that the deal has been agreed to between the two clubs, however, it hasn’t been finalized to this point.

The Fire, who have had a busy offseason to this point, re-signing captain Dax McCarty and on the verge of bringing back attacking players Bastian Schweinsteiger and David Accam, reached the playoffs in 2017 for the first time in five years.

Meanwhile, Orlando has had a tumultuous few hours today with the Cyle Larin saga dragging on. Turkish side Besiktas released a message stating that a deal had been finalized between the two clubs, however, the Lions refuted that report by revealing that the former University of Connecticut product is under contract until 2019.
