Philadelphia Union Officially Sign Colombian Striker Lionard Pajoy

The Philadelphia Union officially announced the signing of Lionard Pajoy, formerly of Itagüí Ditaires (on loan from Millonarios).

Pajoy, 30, joins the Union after receiving his P-1 visa and is coming off of a career year, having scored 10 goals in 18 games for Itagui. The Colombian forward was tied for the scoring lead in Liga Postobon last year.

"After meeting him, we're very pleased, and it just confirmed our suspicion that he's a guy that can come in and not only score goals, but be a good impact on the team," Diego Gutierrez, the Union's Head of Scouting, told PhiladelphiaUnion.com.

The team's newest signing joins an attack that already includes four players under the age of 21. The Union will have plenty of competition at striker in 2012, after drafting Danny Mwanga, Jack McInerney and Chandler Hoffman in the last three years, and also bringing in Costa Rican international Josue Martinez, plus Pajoy.
