A week after FC Cincinnati selected Haris Medunjanin in the waiver draft, the second-year side inked the midfielder to a deal for the 2020 Major League Soccer season.
Medunjanin, who spent the last three seasons with the Philadelphia Union, was made available after he and the Union opted to not pursue a contract for 2020.
“We are pleased to add an experienced midfielder in Haris to our roster,” FC Cincinnati general manager Gerard Nijkamp said. “We believe his strengths on the pitch will be a good fit for our style of play. We look forward to integrating Haris within our squad as we look to the 2020 MLS season.”
With the addition of Medunjanin, FC Cincinnati now has 10 midfielders listed on its roster and there is little room for flexibility at the moment with 26 players listed in the squad.
Medunjanin, 34, started in every game for the Union this past season, dishing out 10 assists and scoring once. He was the only outfield player to play every minute for the Union in 2019.
Before joining MLS in 2017, the Bosnian midfielder featured for clubs in Israel, Spain and Turkey. He had 60 caps for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team between 2009 and 2018, and played in the 2014 World Cup.
According to Opta, Medunjanin led all MLS players in completed passes this past season with 2,182.
