Austin FC signed free-agent forward Maximiliano “Maxi” Urruti to a two-year contract on Tuesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team for Urruti.

“I’m very excited for these new beginnings with Austin FC,” Urruti said. “I’m happy to wear these colors and can’t wait to celebrate with all the fans at Q2 Stadium. Vamos Verde y Negro!”

Urruti, 30, recorded seven goals and four assists in 30 matches (25 starts) with Houston Dynamo FC last season. The Argentine has 60 goals and 37 assists in 238 career matches (180 starts) with the Portland Timbers, Toronto FC, FC Dallas, CF Montreal and Dynamo.

Urruti helped the Timbers capture the MLS Cup in 2015.

“Maxi is a winner with a proven history of scoring goals and creating chances,” said Claudio Reyna, Austin FC’s sporting director. “He’ll help us become more dynamic in the attacking third and we look forward to welcoming him and his family to Austin.”
