D.C. United have announced that the club has signed Argentine forward Pablo Hernandez, who last played with Club Defensor Sporting in the Uruguayan First Division. Hernandez will likely already know the system because he has been training with the team for three weeks already.
The 23-year old scored three goals while appearing in 11 games for his club last year.
"Pablo is a talented young striker with a big upside and we are excited to welcome him to our team," said United General Manager Dave Kasper. "He is a very technical player with great athletic qualities who makes things happen around the goal."
Hernandez will join the team as soon as the club receives confirmation of his international transfer, and he gets a new visa. More on the signing as it becomes available.
