[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN] Expansion Indy Eleven, which is off to Arizona to play three MLS teams, added veteran Honduran midfielder Walter Ramirez from the San Antonio Scorpions for whom he was a 2012 NASL Best XI pick.
The 30-year-old Ramirez, who made 51 appearances for San Antonio, is the second Honduran to sign with Indy after 28-year-old international defender Erick Norales.

“Having another veteran presence like Walter Ramirez to build around should provide Indy Eleven fans great confidence that the building of our roster is heading in the right direction,” said Indy President/General Manager Peter Wilt.

Indy will open Wednesday against the Vancouver Whitecaps at Grande Sports World before playing Sporting Kansas City and Portland in Tucson.

-- The New York Cosmos signed 23-year-old Norwegian forward Mads Stokkelien, who helped Stabaek, Bob Bradley's new club, to a second-place finish and promotion to Norway's first division, the Tippeligaen with 17 goals (second in 2013 in the Golden Boot race in the Adeccoligaen).

-- Minnesota United FC 32-year-old signed Brazilian defender Tiago Calvano, who has played in Brazil, Spain, Switzerland, Germany and most recently Australia, where he played with the Newcastle Jets and Sydney FC. The 32-year-old central defender is the third offseason signing for Minnesota after Columbian-American forward Christian Ramirez and Serbian-born midfielder Mozzi Gyorio.

-- The Atlanta Silverbacks signed 25-year-old midfielder Blair Gavin, who has four years of MLS experience under his belt, having played for Chivas USA, New England and Seattle. The central midfielder represents the Silverbacks' fourth signing in the last two weeks, joining forwards Matt Horth and Kwadwo Poku and midfielder Junior Sandoval.
