New York City FC have announced that their first-ever Homegrown Player James Sands has been loaned out to USL side Louisville City FC.
Good luck at @loucityfc, James! #ForTheCity https://t.co/UZH870Cchp— New York City FC (@NYCFC) August 15, 2018
The loan isn’t for very long, as Sands will only be with Louisville until September 1. However, the defending USL champions will have five games from now until that point, meaning that Sands will definitely have a handful of opportunities to play.
Sands has had struggled to get minutes while with NYCFC. Since signing midseason last year, the Rye, NY native has only capped in one league game an one US Open Cup game.
