SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC added Jamaican international Jason Johnson to its squad on Tuesday, as the former Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo forward became the club’s latest signing.

“I’m obviously very excited to join the club,” said Johnson. “Throughout my career, I have noticed it is very important to be a part of a place that you feel welcome and are willing to give your all in, and I feel that way about this organization. I am excited to get on the field and give my heart and soul for the club.”

The 25-year-old forward made more than 40 appearances over three season in MLS, and had two goals and two assists for the Fire last season. Johnson has also spent time in the USL on loan with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, for whom he had one goal and one assist in 13 appearances in 2014.
