KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Sporting Kansas City traded forward Teal Bunbury to New England on Wednesday for allocation money and the Revolution's first-round pick in next year's MLS SuperDraft.

The Canadian-born Bunbury was the fourth overall pick in the 2010 draft and has scored 21 goals with seven assists in 94 MLS games. Bunbury tore his ACL two years ago and returned to the field last season, helping Sporting KC win its first MLS Cup championship since 2000.

The 23-year-old Bunbury also has made four appearances with the U.S. men's national team.

Sporting KC now has two first-round picks in next year's draft. The allocation money can be used to sign players new to MLS, re-signing an existing MLS player or buy down a player's salary budget charge below the league maximum of $368,750.

Bunbury was born in Hamilton and is the son of former Canadian national team striker Alex Bunbury but has chosen to play for the U.S.
