Columbus signs Luis Gallardo

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Columbus Crew General Manager Mark McCullers and Head Coach Greg Andrulis announced today that The Crew has signed Panamanian midfielder Luis Gallardo to a developmental contract.

Per team and league policy, no terms of the deal were disclosed. He will be classified as a Youth International and is eligible to play this weekend.

The 18-year-old Gallardo is a regular starter on the Panamanian Under-20 national team that will compete at the World Youth Championship in Holland (June 10-July 2). Gallardo started all three games for Panama in qualifying for the World Youth Championship that were held in California in January. He scored one goal.

"Luis is a very good player who will only continue to get better," said Andrulis. "At 18, he is the second youngest player on our team but he has tremendous potential and is a great addition to our team."

The 5-8 midfielder was playing in the Perez Zeledon system in Costa Rica. With Gallardo's signing, The Crew has filled its 10-man developmental roster.
