DC United sign Fluminense defender Roger

Released Fluminense defender Roger has signed a one-year deal with DC United. The Brazilian was expected to travel to the United States next week to undergo a physical and sign his contract, the Lance sports daily reported on its website on Friday.

"I had other possible offers which could be better financially, but I wanted to go to (the United States) with my family," Roger said. "I'm investing in my future and in the future of my family. I want to end my career in the United States."

Roger has not played in an official match in three months because of a back injury. He was released by Fluminense late last year.
