SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose Earthquakes have signed defender Carlos Akapo, who has played with Cadiz in Spain’s LaLiga since 2019.
“Carlos is a talented player with significant experience for both club and country,” Quakes general manager Chris Leitch said in a statement on Friday. “He’s made 200 professional appearances in Spain, including more than 50 in LaLiga. He will be an important addition at a position of need. He’s also capable of contributing on both sides of the field which should improve the flexibility and versatility of our roster.”
Akapo has appeared in 28 games for Equatorial Guinea in international play.
Akapo will join the Earthquakes once he obtains his visa and transfer papers.
