DC United have signed Gambian winger Sainey Nyassi.

The 25-year old joins the Washington outfit as a free agent after he was released by New England Revolution recently.

"[Nyassi] possesses the speed and ability to unlock opposing defenses, and he will provide us with solid cover at wide midfield," said United General Manager Dave Kasper.

Nyassi spent just over five years with the Revs, making over 100 MLS appearances, including the triumphant Lamar Hunt US Open Cup final in 2007.
