TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing
Davis, 32, joins the Black-and-Red after last playing for Slovakian first-division side DAC Dunajska Streda.
“Éric is a veteran left back who provides quality service, intelligence on both sides of the ball, and a high degree of professionalism,” Dave Kasper, D.C. United’s president of soccer operations, said in a release. “He has a ton of international experience with the Panama national team, and we’re excited to integrate him with the team and bolster our roster.”
While at DAC Dunajska Streda, Davis scored 20 goals and recorded 32 assists in 196 appearances across all competitions. He has also played extensively for Panamanian side CD Árabe Unido.
D.C. United have utilized several left backs this season, including free-agent signing Pedro Santos and Gaoussou Samaké. Mohanad Jeahze, an offseason signing from the Swedish first division, has been out following ankle surgery.
The Black-and-Red, in their first full season under head coach Wayne Rooney, are chasing an Audi MLS Cup Playoffs return after a last-place finish in 2022. That is narrowly on track, sitting ninth in the Eastern Conference at the Leagues Cup break.
