"We are excited to bring Sebastián to the Fire," said Technical Director and Interim Head Coach Frank Klopas.
"Sebastián is a talented player, with good vision, the ability to create in the middle of the park and a strong left foot. Sebastián's addition provides us with additional talent and helps us as we push for a playoff spot in the second half of the season."
