D.C. United have bolstered their attacking options, signing midfielder Syamsir Alam on loan from Belgium club C.S. Vise.
United announced the addition of the 20-year-old Indonesian on Friday morning, and Alam joins the club after having spent time at SC Heerenveen and Vitesse Arnhem of the Eredivisie, and Uruguayan side Penarol. Alam is from Jakarta, Indonesia, the same hometown of one of D.C. United’s new owners, Erick Thohir.
“Syamsir is a young, attacking midfielder with good technical ability, and we look forward to having him on loan with us,” said D.C. United general manager Dave Kasper in a statement released by the club.
Per league and club policy, details of the deal were not disclosed.
What do you think of United signing Alam on loan? Believe he will make an impact on the 2013 season? Wishing the club would have looked at options within MLS?
