The Philadelphia Union signed attacker Markus Anderson to a three-year contract through 2026.
The deal announced Monday with Anderson, acquired from Spain’s CF Rayo Majadahonda, includes club options for 2027 and 2028.
Anderson, 20, registered three goals in 18 matches (14 starts) for the Spanish third-tier club in 2023.
“Markus, who holds U.S. citizenship, is a very physical and quick striker,” Union sporting director Ernst Tanner said. “After initially playing in the fifth division in Spain, he was able to quickly progress to the third division where he has been performing well at a very young age. He is another great example of how adept our scouting department is at identifying talent and we look forward to integrating him as quickly as possible with the team.”
