TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing
Orlando City SC have signed Brazilian right back Ruan to a one-year deal, the club announced Wednesday. The 23-year-old most recently featured for Associação Atlética Ponte Preta in Brazil’s Serie B on loan.
Ruan made 49 appearances over the last two seasons and played for Internacional in Brazil's Serie A prior to joining Ponte Preta on loan.
“We are very excited to welcome Ruan to Orlando City. He is a dependable right back that has excellent speed and is dangerous in his transition on the offensive side of the ball,” OCSC EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said in a media release. “As a club we continue to provide depth on our roster and build competition within the group as we head into our 2019 preseason.”
