The Chicago Fire acquired defender Jonathan Dean from the Birmingham Legion of the USL Championship on Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed. Dean is under contract through the 2023 season with club options for 2024 and 2025.

“We started following Jonathan closely last summer and we are excited to welcome him to the Chicago Fire,” sporting director Georg Heitz said in a news release. “He will bring a healthy competition to our outside back group and provide the team with much-needed depth in the upcoming season.”

Dean, 25, played in 81 matches the past three seasons with Birmingham.
