FC Cincinnati are reportedly set to add a familiar face to their inaugural MLS roster. 

According to The Athletic's Paul Tenorio, FC Cincy have signed winger Kekuta Manneh from Swiss Super League team St. Gallen. Tenorio added that it's "unclear" whether FCC will pay a transfer fee while they agreed a deal with Columbus Crew SC for his MLS rights. 

Manneh, 24, featured in MLS for the Vancouver Whitecaps and Crew SC. He had four goals and three assists in 2017, his final in the league, despite playing just under 1,000 minutes. All in all, Manneh has 26 goals and 15 assists in 120 appearances (71 starts). 

After leaving the Crew following the 2017 season, Manneh spent the first half of 2018 with Liga MX's Pachuca before moving to St. Gallen this summer. He failed to nail down regular playing time for either club, with six appearances in Mexico and nine in Switzerland.

The American would join Roland Lamah as two Cincy wingers with regular MLS experience.
