New York City FC added midfield depth on Thursday, announcing the signing of Daniel Bedoya from the Long Island Rough Riders, the club’s PDL affiliate. Bedoya has been training with the first-team since catching the eye of the coaching staff in a midweek scrimmage between NYCFC and the Rough Riders at Etihad City Football Academy.
Bedoya told NYCFC.com: “It’s awesome that I’m in the city that I was raised in. I came from Colombia when I was eight and have been in Queens ever since. Playing for the team of my city, it’s just a great opportunity for me and I’m very excited.
