The Union on Friday signed forward Yann Ekra, who joins the team from the Harrisburg City Islanders -- their USL PRO affiliate.

Ekra scored 10 goals and tallied four assists in over 40 matches in two seasons with the Islanders. He also spent time with Hull in England and Olympique Lyonnaise in France.

The 22-year-old is a native of Ivory Coast, and will occupy an international roster spot on the Union. He’ll join his new team following work authorization and a physical.

The terms of the deal were no disclosed, per club and MLS policy.
