The New England Revolution acquired forward Teal Bunbury on Wednesday in a trade with Sporting Kansas City.

The Revs sent their first-round draft pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft and allocation money to Sporting KC.

“We’ve been very open about our desire to add some additional attacking players to our roster ahead of the season and we believe Teal is a player who can make the sort of impact we need,” New England general manager Michael Burns said.

“He’s a talented, young player who can add a dynamic element to our system, and we’re looking forward to getting him into camp and integrated into our group as soon as possible.”

Bunbury, 23, was drafted fourth overall in 2010 by Kansas City and in 89 career appearances has 19 goals and seven assists.

The striker scored a career-high nine goals in 2011, tying for the team lead in his second pro season.

Since his sophomore season, Bunbury has seen limited MLS action due to international call-ups and injury.

Bunbury is a dual U.S. and Canadian citizen. Born in Canada, he has played on Canada’s Under-17 and Under-20 teams before declaring for the United States’ senior national team.

Bunbury’s father, Alex Bunbury, is a former member of the Kansas City Wizards (1999-2000, now Sporting KC), making Teal one of Major League Soccer’s first second-generation players.
