    KANSAS CITY, Kansas -- Sporting Kansas City announced Monday that it has mutually agreed to part ways with Haiti international midfielder Peterson Joseph.

    The 24-year-old, who signed with the club on September 1, 2011, appeared in a combined 36 Major League Soccer (MLS) regular- and post-season matches, three CONCACAF Champions League encounters and three U.S. Open Cup victories.

    On the MLS Disabled List since the start of the 2014 season, Joseph’s last appearance for the club came in October 2013.

    He began his career domestically in 2004 with Aigle Noir AC of Port-au-Prince and joined Portugal’s SC Braga in 2007, before spending one year on loan with FC Vizela.

    Joseph has played in four World Cup qualifiers and three CONCACAF Gold Cup matches for Haiti, while also scoring one goal in three outings at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

    Sporting KC opens its 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League campaign at Nicaragua’s Real Esteli on August 19.
