S2, the Sounders’ USL team, announced Friday the signings of defender Brandon John and midfielders Jordy Delem and Willy Kapawa. All three are eligible for Sunday night’s home match against Oklahoma Energy FC. Per league and club policy, terms of the agreements are not being disclosed.
John, 21, is a native of St. Vincent and the Grenadines — as is coach Ezra Hendrickson, forward Myron Samuel and Sounders attacker Oalex Anderson — though he has Canadian citizenship and played for Canada’s U-20 team. He most recently suited up for FC Erzgebirge Aue’s U-23 squad in the German fifth division.
Delem, a 23-year-old defensive midfielder, has earned 29 caps and scored four goals for the Martinique national team. And Kapawa, 23, signs from Lion Blesse de Fotouni of his native Cameroon.
“We are pleased to welcome Brandon, Jordy and Willy into our squad in the early part of our season,” Hendrickson said in the release. “Each player has shown well while on trial with us, so we’re excited to continue their development and see what they can add to the squad.”
