With four defenders gone from last year’s squad, Chivas USA has inked their third new defensive signing in the last five days.
Chivas USA announced on Monday that they’ve signed defender Fejiro Okiomah to their squad for the upcoming season. Okiomah signs as a free agent and spent last season with the Charlotte Eagles of USL Pro, leading the club to the USL Pro final.
Per league and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 23-year-old Okiomah joins New Zealand international Tony Lochhead and Andrew Ribeiro as defensive signings in the last week. Chivas USA also traded for Andrew Jean-Baptiste in December. Defenders Mario de Luna, Jaime Frias Jr., Edgar Mejia, and Steven Purdy Ramos all left the club since the end of the 2013 MLS season.
What do you think of this news? Do you see Okiomah fitting into Chivas USA’s starting lineup?
