Waterford FC have signed former Deportivo de la Coruña player Carlos Wilson.
The Portuguese-born midfielder and Angolan international joins the club after a recent spell with Portuguese side União da Madeira. He also had spells in Spain, Belgium and Greece.
The 29 year old, known as Rudy, will go straight into the squad pending international clearance.
“I am very pleased to be joining Waterford FC. I had a great welcome from the staff and the boys since I’ve come in. My first impression was positive and I was blown away by the depth the coaches go into in training.
“The football club has a very positive atmosphere and the boys get along very well with brilliant team spirit on and off the field. Waterford is a great club to be at and I think I will learn a lot here.”
Speaking after the signing, Waterford FC manager Alan Reynolds said: “He’s come in and he’s done well with the lads so we delighted to get him sorted. He’s a big, strong lad and we think he’ll suit what we’re trying to do.
“We’ve brought in Noel, Dessie, Noe, kept Courtney and now we’ve added Rudy, so we’re adding the depth that we’ll need for the rest of the season.”
Meanwhile, John Kavanagh has returned to Cork City after the completion of his loan deal.
The club would also like to thank John Kavanagh who has returned to Cork City after the completion of his loan deal. Injury put a stop to Kavanagh’s run of games at the Blues but the club wish John all the best.
“John has gone back to Cork,” Reynolds said. “He was a great lad to have around, was unlucky with the injury but we thank him for all his work during the first half of the season and wish him well.”
