Union sign Colombian forward Pajoy



The Philadelphia Union completed the long-rumored signing of Colombian forward Lionard Pajoy from Itagui Ditaires on Wednesday, adding a piece that can help fill the scoring void left behind by the departed Sebastien Le Toux. Pajoy has received his P-1 visa, according to a team release, and will be joining the club soon for preseason preparations.

The 30-year-old, 6-foot-1 veteran had played his entire professional career in his native Colombia and is coming off a 13-goal year for Itagui Ditaires, adding another element to the Union's ever-changing attack.

After trading Le Toux to Vancouver and losing Veljko Paunovic to retirement, the Union have retooled up top, adding Pajoy, Costa Rican Josue Martinez and UCLA's Chandler Hoffman to 2010 first-round SuperDraft picks Danny Mwanga and Jack McInerney.
