New York Cosmos’ Kyle Reynish headed to Chicago Fire

New York Cosmos keeper Kyle Reynish did it all in his first season of NASL action and is now ready for another shot at Major League Soccer.

Several sources have confirmed to EOS that the 2013 NASL Golden Glove winner is headed to the Chicago Fire.

Reynish, 30, had a standout Fall Championship for the Cosmos. He started 13 of 14 regular season games, earning eight wins, five shutouts and helping his team towards the Fall Championship and Soccer Bowl in just half a year’s work.

Prior to his stint in the NASL, Reynish spent much of his early career backing up MLS star keeper Nick Rimando in Real Salt Lake, seeing limited action through six seasons.

A similar situation may await him in Chicago. According to sources, Reynish will be penciled in as the backup for starting keeper and U.S. National Team fringe player Sean Johnson, just ahead of now third string keeper Alec Kann (23). However, unlike his time at Salt Lake, there may be anticipated opportunity at the Fire. Johnson, 25, remains a highly coveted player and could very well see European interest this summer, making way for the veteran Reynish to plead his case as an MLS level starter.

In the absence of Reynish, New York have re-signed former New York Red Bull supplemental draft pick Jimmy Maurer to a new deal. Maurer made a single appearance last season, registering a shutout against the Atlanta Silverbacks. He will likely be backed up by either goalkeeper Chad Calderone or Bryan Meredith. Whether the team will search for another veteran option is still up in the air.

The Fire are expected to make Reynish’s signing official within the next few days.
