It appears longtime Galaxy midfielder Kenney Walker is no longer a member of the LA Galaxy.
This morning, a press conference was held to formally announce the first 11 signings of FC Cincinnati, a newly minted USL club set to kick off in 2016.
Tweets from the club's Twitter page show the LA defensive midfielder seated in the right corner.

While Walker was probably never going to be a starter in Bruce Arena's lineup, he was a useful utility player who had just started to develop a silky touch in the final third. Though he set career highs with five starts and ten appearances in all competitions in 2014, his playing time dropped this year, perhaps paving the way for a new change of scenery.
(Walker himself says a few words at the 31:20 mark of the press conference)
What do you think of the move?
