HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Portugal's Belenenses on Jan. 4, 2017.
Fernandes is a dynamic left-footed winger able to play on either side of the field. He had five goals in 17 starts in 2018 and will expect to be a major part of Peter Vermes' attack in 2019.
OUTSIDE MLS: Fernandes played more than 150 matches during a six-year professional career in Portugal with Estoril (2011-2016), Moreirense (on loan in 2014-15) and Belenenses (2016). Five of those six seasons came in the Portuguese first division (2012-2016).
