Minnesota United sign former US youth international defender DJ Taylor


Minnesota United have signed defender DJ Taylor, the membership introduced Tuesday. Taylor was most just lately with North Carolina FC within the USL Championship.

Taylor, 23, spent 4 seasons with North Carolina the place he was named Defensive Player of the 12 months in 2019. He started his career in Spain with CF Torre Levante and has made a couple of appearances with the US U-18 national team. 

“We’re fortunate to bring in somebody like DJ [Taylor],” Adrian Heath said in a membership assertion. “It’s a great alternative for him, he’s eager to be right here. He’s a young and gifted fullback, he’s obtained some national team expertise and he’s been a standout in USL and at his former membership on the backline. One of many issues we have now tried to do over the past seasons is get youthful and bring in players to compete for spots. We really feel with this move we have now continued with that method and we expect DJ to right away make our membership higher.”

Taylor is Minnesota’s fourth addition of the winter, following Wil Trapp, Callum Montgomery and Jukka Raitala.
