It's been speculated on for a while, but Trinidadian midfielder Kevin Molino could be on the way in a trade with Adrian Heath's former club Orlando City.

A reporter from the Orlando Sentinel confirmed the trade is official.

The price tag is heavy (perhaps too much so). MNUFC will part with $650k in money, $450k in General Allocation Money and $200k in Targeted Allocation Money.

Goalkeeper Patrick McLain is part of the deal as well. He is a Wisconsin native and has played sparingly as a backup in his MLS career.

Molino scored 11 goals in 30 games with Orlando last year while racking up 8 assists.

It was previously thought that talks between the clubs had stopped after the Loons' bid was rejected. It is reported that Molino wasn't satisfied with Orlando City, and requested a move.

Neither club has confirmed this deal, but when they do we'll keep you updated.
