TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Trade
Rocha, 25, joins NYCFC after spending seasons with Orlando, where he made 23 appearances and tallied four assists for the first team between USL loan spells at Orlando City B in 2017 and Saint Louis FC last season. A product of the University of Tulsa, the Texan also spent time in USL with the now-defunct Austin Aztex earlier in his career.
“I really like Tony as a player and he’s proven to be extremely versatile during his time in Orlando,” said Cityzens coach Dome Torrent in a statement. “Playing both midfield and defense, we think he’ll fit our system quite well and provide us with quality depth across the pitch.”
It’s the latest in a string of roster moves for Orlando this week, as the Lions wade into what’s expected to be a busy offseason following a difficult 2018 campaign.
