Atlanta United signs defender Franco Escobar from Newell's Old Boys

Relive all Atlanta United's spectacular goals during their inaugural season in MLS.

Atlanta United has signed defender Franco Escobar from Argentine side Newell's Old Boys, the club announced on Friday.

Escobar, 22, will be a discovery signing for the club pending the receipt of his international transfer certificate.

"Franco is a physical and versatile defender, capable of playing anywhere along the back line," Atlanta technical director Carlos Bocanegra said of the signing.

"He's a young player who has already featured often in the Argentina Primera Division and he brings a level of toughness that will suit MLS and benefit our club immediately."

Escobar can play both as a right-back and center-back. He made 12 starts for 11th-placed Newell's last season.
