Feb. 19, the New England Revolution acquired forward Teal Bunbury in a trade with Sporting Kansas City for New England's natural first-round draft pick and allocation money. Bunbury will join the Revolution in Tucson for preseason training this week.

Bunbury, 23, has been with Sporting KC since that club drafted him fourth overall in 2010. Bunbury made 48 starts in 89 career appearances with SKC and scored 19 goals and added seven assists. With Sporting KC, Bunbury won the 2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and MLS Cup 2013.

Bunbury saw limited MLS action in 2012 and 2013 because of international call-ups and a torn ACL, and in 2013 he only tallied one assist in 12 appearances.

Born in Canada, Bunbury is a dual U.S. and Canadian citizen and appeared on Canada’s U17 and U20 teams before declaring for the senior U.S. Men's National Team. He has four caps and scored his first senior international goal in a 1-1 draw against Chile. Under current U.S. National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Bunbury has been called into three training camps: September 2011, October 2011 and January 2012.

Bunbury is one of Major League Soccer’s first-ever second-generation players as his father Alex played for the Canadian National Team and the Kansas City Wizards.

Bunbury played two seasons at Akron, helping the Zips to the 2009 College Cup championship match and winning the Hermann Trophy as the nation’s top collegiate player. In 48 total appearances at Akron, Bunbury scored 23 goals and added eight assists.
