Kyle Reynish leaves the Cosmos, signs with Chicago Fire

Mike Zarrilli

The Cosmos will have a new first choice keeper in 2014, as last season's starter has returned to MLS

Kyle Reynish will not be returning to the Cosmos in 2014, as he's agreed to a deal that will see him join the Chicago Fire. Reynish started all but one of New York's regular season contests last season, as well as the Soccer Bowl victory against Atlanta.

The 30-year old keeper joined Real Salt Lake in 2007, and was with the MLS club until he joined the Cosmos in 2013. During his six season with RSL, Reynish made just eight appearances. He'll likely return to a backup role with the Fire, as Sean Johnson is firmly established as the starter in Chicago.

Johnson is a strong possibility to be called into the US World Cup squad this summer, making a quality backup keeper a priority. There is also a chance that Johnson leaves MLS in the near future, meaning Reynish could be in position to challenge for a starting role in the future.

Reynish's departure likely means that Jimmy Maurer will take over in goal, with Scott Angevine backing him up. Maurer kept a clean sheet in his only appearance last season, while Angevine was limited to a single bench appearance.
