DC United have signed Swiss defender Dennis Iapichino.

The 23-year old left-back, who departed Montreal Impact just over a week ago, has been added to the DC roster ahead of the Washington club's trip to the Saputo Stadium this weekend.

DC general manager Dave Kasper was delighted to have secured the services of the former FC Basel and FC Lugano full-back.

"We are pleased to be adding a quality left back in Dennis," said Kasper. "He possesses very good technical ability and is a smart player tactically. We look forward to having him as a part of United."
