Orlando City SC sign Swedish center back Robin Jansson

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Transfer

Orlando City SC have signed center back Robin Jansson from Swedish first division champions AIK, the club announced Tuesday. 

Jansson, 27, made 25 appearances for AIK last season and made his debut for the Sweden national team in January. He has spent his entire career in his native country, making 50 appearances for IK Oddevold.

“Robin is a guy that we’re excited to bring to Orlando after the success he has had overseas in Sweden,” Orlando EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said in a club statement. “This signing continues to build depth and competition within our group for the 2019 season.”

After a disappointing defensive season in 2018, Orlando have taken strides to improve that end of the field in 2019. They have drawn their opening two matches.

Orlando are next in action on Saturday against the Montreal Impact (4 pm ET | TVAS — Full TV & streaming info).
