Besler signed a long-term designated player contract with Sporting KC on Saturday, the club's official web site reports.
Besler had been heavily linked to a number of European clubs this summer, but has instead opted to remain with his hometown club. A lot of the talk about a potential move to Sunderland or Fulham seemed to be about his salary, which had him as the 32nd-highest paid defender in Major League Soccer. Thanks to a solid World Cup for the US Men's National Team, Besler will get the raise he deserves while being able to stay at home.
