Atlanta United announced today that it has signed Eric Remedi to a multiyear contract using Targeted Allocation Money, pending the receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). A Discovery Signing, Remedi has spent his entire professional career in Argentina’s Primera Division with Banfield. He’ll be available for selection once the secondary transfer window opens on July 10.
A 23-year-old midfielder, Remedi made his professional debut on June 6, 2015, versus Sarmiento and has made 68 appearances across all competitions in three years. During the 2017-18 season, Remedi started 21 league matches, helping Banfield to a mid-table finish. Playing as a defensive midfielder, Remedi helped anchor one of the league’s top defenses, as only six teams allowed fewer goals than Banfield (24) during the 27-game season. During the 2016-17 season, he made 23 starts in 24 appearances as Banfield finished in 5th place to qualify for the Copa Libertadores second stage. He also started all three matches in the Copa Argentina where Banfield reached the Round of 16.
Atlanta United (10-3-4, 34 points) returns to action Saturday against Orlando City SC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (7:00 p.m., ESPN).
