Commerce City, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rapids announced Tuesday that the club has signed 19-year-old forward Charles Eloundou, pending the pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC), a medical, and a P-1 work visa.
"Charles is a great young player with a lot of potential, and we got to see his skill in person at the very end of 2013," said Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo. "This permanent transfer gives us another exciting, attacking player on our roster who can help both right away and in the future. After a strong SuperDraft yesterday, Charles is another addition that fits our model and we look forward to welcoming him at the start of our preseason."
Eloundou has gained valuable experience with the Cameroon U-20 National Team, scoring eight goals in seven matches during U-20 African Nations Cup qualifying in 2012.
