KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Sporting Kansas City has acquired midfielder Benny Feilhaber from the New England Revolution for allocation money along with the club's first-round draft pick this season and second-round draft pick next season.

The 27-year-old Feilhaber, a veteran of the U.S. men's national team, was added to the Sporting KC roster on Tuesday.

Feilhaber has made 39 appearances for the United States over the past five seasons, which included three games during the 2008 Olympics. He's the only player to have appeared in the 2009 Confederations Cup, that year's Gold Cup and the 2010 World Cup for the national team.

At the club level, Feilhaber made 52 appearances for the Revolution over the last two seasons with five goals and nine assists.
