Orlando City FC completed the acquisition of Paraguayan attacking midfielder Josue Colman, announcing the five-year deal on Monday.
The agreement includes additional club option years and the 19-tear-old Colman will be added to the roster as a Young Designated Player, pending the receipt of his ITC and P-1 Visa. He joins the Lions from Club Cerro Porteno of Paraguay’s Primera Division.
“We are pleased to welcome such an exciting young prospect to our roster,” Orlando general manager Niki Budalic said in statement. “Josue has great pace and can create chances for himself and others. His skill set and profile give us confidence he will be a great fit in Orlando and MLS for years to come.”
Club Cerro Porteno won the 2017 Torneo Clausura championship, and Colman also participated in the Copa Sudamericana each of the past two years. He has 16 appearances for Paraguay’s U-17 and U-20 national teams, and scored a goal in three appearances at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
