The German media outlet Bild reports that D.C. United is one of three MLS clubs that are interested in the services of 29-year-old midfielder Sonny Kittel from Hamburg (Pablo Maurer confirms the interest on DC’s side). The report lists a transfer fee of 1 million Euros, with a 2 and a half year contract (with an additional option year) signed that will presumably make him a designated player. The two other MLS clubs that are interested are Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake, though it should be noted that ESPN reported that SKC is close to signing a midfielder from another German side (Erik Thommy from Stuttgart), and Black and Red United understands that RSL does not appear to be interested at this time.
