Colorado Rapids are in the final stages of executing a loan agreement, which would send 23-year-old striker Danny Mwanga to New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League (NASL).

The loan spell would be until the end of the NASL season, though the Rapids could recall Mwanga at any time up to the roster freeze on September 15.

Mwanga has made six appearances this season, including two starts. He joined the Rapids from Portland Timbers in February 2013, in exchange for Colorado's 2015 first round MLS SuperDraft pick.
