LAFC picked up the rights to Kaye from Louisville City “for an undisclosed fee believed to be one of the highest paid for a USL player,” according to Ives Galarcep of Goal.com. He played for Louisville City, leading the team to a USL championship last season. He scored four goals for Louisville during the season.
Additionally, the 23-year-old also played for Canada in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Prior to joining Louisville City in 2016, Kaye was a member of Toronto FC’s academy and he played on TFC 2 during its inaugural season.
If the move is complete, it would be the first opportunity Kaye will have with MLS. Before time with the TFC academy, Kaye spent the 2014 season with the Wilmington Hammerheads when the team was in the USL – now the Hammerheads compete in the PDL.
With Team Canada, Kaye started in 1-1 draw with Costa Rica in the group stage of Gold Cup 2017 and, more recently, started in a 1-0 loss at El Salvador on Oct. 8, 2017.
