Former Orlando City striker Giles Barnes joins Liga MX outfit Leon

GIles Barnes will be playing for Leon in Liga MX, the club announced on Tuesday.

Liga MX side Club Leon announced the signing of Jamaica international Giles Barnes with a twist on Tuesday.

Leon released a video of a graffiti artist painting the face of the new signing accompanied by reggae music, with fans and the media left to work it out that it was 29-year-old England-born forward Barnes.

The club eventually revealed it was indeed Barnes, although there were no further details on the length of contract.

Barnes has been without a club since Orlando City declined its option on him back in November and has previously played for Derby County, West Bromwich Albion, Houston Dynamo and Vancouver Whitecaps.

Barnes made headlines last October when a group he was with, including U.S. women's national team star Alex Morgan and several other Orlando City players, were told to leave Disney World theme park by police last October.

Leon started its 2018 Clausura campaign with a 2-1 win away against Atlas and will face Toluca on Saturday in Estadio Leon.
