Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) announced today that the Club has signed Colombian defender Eddie Segura from Atlético Huila on a six-month loan with a purchase option. The 21-year-old center back will occupy an international slot in LAFC’s roster in 2019 pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P1 visa.
“At such a young age, Eddie has accumulated a wealth of experience in Colombia, and we believe he has the requisite potential and qualities to make an immediate impact to our backline next season.” said General Manager and EVP of Soccer Operations John Thorrington. “Eddie is a strong, dynamic defender who fits well with how we play, and, similar to our other players, will continue his progress as a player here in Los Angeles.”
Segura, 21, becomes the Club’s first offseason signing and will join the Black & Gold at the start of preseason camp in January.
