Wolf, a 24-year-old former Austrian youth international, is under contract through the 2027 MLS season with an option for 2028.

"He is a very creative, direct and versatile player, who also possesses a fantastic work rate defensively, who can play across several positions in our attack," Lee added. "Hannes will be a huge addition to our group with his experience and quality and we are delighted that he decided to join us ahead of the other opportunities he had in Europe."
