Chicago Fire have signed former University of California midfielder Davis Paul.
Paul was selected by the Fire in the 2011 MLS Superdraft with the 51st overall pick and has now been added to the roster for the season which kicks off against FC Dallas at Pizza Hut Park on Saturday.
Fire technical director Frank Klopas said the acquisition was a very handy one for the club.
"We've been pleased with Davis' skill, effort and attitude on-and-off the field," said Klopas.
"Davis is a creative player and a strong competitor with the ability to play up top and on the wing. We are excited about his future with the club."
