US striker Eddie Johnson signs for Mexico’s Puebla

Mexican club Puebla says United States striker Eddie Johnson is

joining the team.

Puebla President Roberto Henaine announced the signing on his

official Twitter page, saying Johnson would travel to join his new

teammates Monday.

The 27-year-old former FC Dallas and Kansas City Wizards player

had been out of contract since leaving Premier League team Fulham

in the summer.

Johnson joins fellow U.S. international DaMarcus Beasley at

Puebla. Beasley tweeted that ”we wanna welcome my boy Eddie

Johnson to Puebla!”

While at Fulham, Johnson had loan spells with Cardiff City and

Preston North End in the English lower leagues, and with Greek side

Aris.
