The New England Revolution bolstered its attack by signing midfielder Guillermo Hauche on Thursday afternoon.
Hauche, an Argentine who can also play as a forward, had a short training stint in Foxborough Sept. 9 and apparently impressed during his time with the team.
Hauche, 25, is from La Plata, Argentina which is roughly 20 miles from Buenos Aires. He has played in both the Argentine and Chilean top-flights. He last played for Deportes Temuco in Chile on loan from Racing Club, but made just eight appearances. Hauche has also played for Union Española, Almagro, La Academia, and Atletico Lanus. He will be added to the roster once his visa and International Transfer Certificate come through.
However, Hauche has never scored a professional goal and has just three assists to his name in six seasons of professional soccer. He last played competitively April 21 in a 2-0 loss to Chilean side Colo-Colo.
“Guillermo is a very technical player who provides us with another attacking option heading into the final stretch of the season,” Revolution General Manager Mike Burns said in a statement released by the club. “He trained with the first team during this past week and we were impressed with his skillset. We’re looking forward to integrating him into the team on a full-time basis.”
