After spending two seasons in Sweden, midfielder Michael Thomas is returning home and will play in the MLS

The Olathe, Kansas native signed with Sporting Kansas City, according to a statement released by the team.

The former Notre Dame Fighting Irish recorded 49 appearances for Ljungskile, starting 27 league matches last year alone. He scored eight goals for the second-tier club over his two seasons in Sweden.

Thomas had a successful career at Notre Dame. He appeared in 83 matches in four years, starting 81, while tallying 19 goals and 13 assists.

Matthew -it's "MLS" (which is short for "Major League Soccer"), not "the MLS" (or "the Major League Soccer"), as "the Major League Soccer" does not make sense.
