The Philadelphia Union signed free-agent center back Abasa Aremeyaw to a contract through the 2024 season, with club options for 2025 and 2026.

He will be added to the active roster when his P1 visa and international transfer certificate are received. Aremeyaw, who turns 19 this month, will take an international roster slot.

“Abasa is a promising young player who has the physique and skill to develop into a contributor in our back line,” said Ernst Tanner, the Union’s sporting director. “His demonstrated ability to make an impact on set plays, combined with his speed and agility, makes him a good fit in the strong defensive system we have built. We look forward to integrating him into the team.”

The 6-foot-3 Aremeyaw most recently played for MSK Zilina B in 2. Liga, Slovakia’s second-tier league, and made seven appearances (all starts). He also has played professionally in his native Ghana.
