As has been highly anticipated for the past three weeks, the Fire announced Tuesday that the team had signed Dutch striker Sherjill MacDonald.
He will be added to the roster as soon as the Fire can free up an international roster spot and will occupy the second of the Fire's three Designated Player slots.
"Sherjill is a goal scorer who can hold the ball up, attack with pace and is very technically sound," Fire head coach Frank Klopas said in a statement. "He has competed at a high level in Europe and will bolster our attack as we make a push toward the MLS Cup Playoffs."
MacDonald comes from Belgian Pro League Side Beerschot AC where he scored 15 goals in 82 matches through the 2012 campaign. He will begin training with the Fire today.
