Eddies sign El Salvadoran midfielder Tomas Granitto


FC Edmonton has reached an agreement to bring El Salvadoran midfielder Tomas Granitto to the club.

The Eddies made the announcement Wednesday.

“We’re very excited that Tomas has shown interest in us and that we’ve come to an agreement,” said FC Edmonton head coach Colin Miller in a release issued by the club. “We’ve been very impressed with what we’ve seen from him. Tomas is a terrific passer of the ball and I think he’s a player that will keep us in possession of the ball in the upcoming season.”

Granitto represented El Salvador at the 2013 U-20 World Cup in Turkey. He scored a goal in that tournament. He has also played for El Salvadoran club, Club Deportivo Luis Ángel Firpo, in the CONCACAF Champions League.

The signing of Granitto does not bring the Eddies to the NASL roster maximum of seven international players. The club has confirmed that Granitto, who played at Florida Gulf Coast University, has his required American paperwork and is considered a domestic. Last week, midfielder Horace James was one of six players released by the Eddies — and that opened up an international spot that the Eddies can still fill.
