Orlando City SC has confirmed the signing of defender Brad Rusin.

The Lions have brought in the 27-year old for the 2014 USL PRO season after he was released by the Vancouver Whitecaps at the end of 2013.

"We're excited to have Brad in, and we're building a bit more strength in the squad," said Orlando boss Adrian Heath of the former HB Koge man.

"We think that he is going to be a big addition for us and we certainly know that he can play at this level, but we're also looking at next year as well.

"We really liked his physicality. He's a big, strong and mobile player. We know that we're bringing in someone who played 20 games in MLS last year for a side that had one of their best seasons to date."
