Orlando City SC sign Brazilian right back Ruan


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.”

Ruan continues Orlando's busy summer, joining fellow newcomers Tesho Akindele, Joao Moutinho, Danilo Acosta, Sebastian Mendez and others.
