CINCINNATI -- FC Cincinnati has traded forward Andy Craven to Oklahoma City in exchange for striker Danni Konig.

Konig, 30, scored four goals in 30 games last season to tie for the OKC Energy FC team-high. He has not yet scored this season, but has made four shots, two of which were on target. This was Konig's third season with Oklahoma City. A native of Denmark, he previously played for Vestsjaelland and Brönshöj BK. Vestsjaelland was competing in Denmark's highest soccer league during the season Konig played there.

"In this business, sometimes you have to give something up, to gain something somewhere else. We thank Andy for his contributions this season and truly wish him well with Oklahoma City," FCC head coach Alan Koch said in a news release. "We are also very excited to add a proven USL goal-scorer to our squad. It is not very often you get presented with an opportunity to bring in a player who recently scored over 20 goals in the league. We look forward to giving Danni a fresh start in his career and also working with him to be successful within our team. He can be used in isolation up front or in tandem with one of our other attacking options."

Craven appeared in three games with FC Cincinnati, but was recently issued a four-game suspension and a fine for a collision with an opposing player. He previously played for Oklahoma City and Seattle Sounders FC 2 in the USL.
