FOXBOROUGH — The Revolution traded midfielder Benny Feilhaber to Sporting Kansas City in exchange for allocation money and Sporting KC’s first-round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and its second-round pick in the 2015 SuperDraft.

Feilhaber, 27, made 52 appearances in two seasons with the Revolution. He scored five goals and added nine assists, including four goals and seven assists in his 23-game 2011 campaign. Prior to joining the Revolution, Feilhaber played six seasons in Europe, including stints with Hamburg (Germany’s Bundesliga), Derby County (England’s Premier League), and AGF Aarhus (Denmark’s SuperLiga).

“We’ve been working on several options with Benny for a few months and we feel this trade with Kansas City is the most beneficial outcome for the Revs,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said. “This move allows us greater roster flexibility in both 2013 and beyond.”
