Sources: Nashville SC signs Costa Rica's Leal

Randall Leal will join MLS expansion side Randall Leal.

Nashville SC has signed Costa Rica international and Deportivo Saprissa midfielder Randall Leal, league sources have told ESPN.

Leal's salary will be above the threshold for a Young Designated Player, but it is unclear if Targeted Allocation Money will be used to buy down his hit to the salary budget.

Leal, 22, is in his second season with Saprissa, having made 38 league and cup appearances while scoring six goals. He spent the previous three seasons with Belgian side KV Mechelen. In 2013, Leal began his professional career in his native Costa Rica with Belen FC.

At international level, Leal has made 11 appearances for Costa Rica, including three at the Gold Cup earlier this summer.

Leal joins a growing list of players ahead of Nashville's debut season in MLS, one that includes the likes of Anibal Godoy, David Accam, and Designated Player Hany Mukhtar.
