talented, young and dynamic midfielder who we think can add to our attack,” said te Kloese. “He has experience playing in for clubs in Mexico, England and the Netherlands and will only
continue to develop and improve as a player. We are excited to add him to our roster and believe he can offer something positive to our team.”
