Detroit City FC’s men’s side has called in a reinforcement with good pedigree for the home stretch of its inaugural season in USL Championship.
The club on Tuesday morning announced the signing of winger Cy Goddard, a former Tottenham youth academy player who spent his most recent season with the Central Coast Mariners of the Australia-based A-League.
Goddard’s deal includes a team option for 2023 and a team and player option for 2024.
Goddard, 25, played in 20 games with the Mariners last season, tallying a goal and three assists. Prior to his stint in Australia, Goddard played with Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League.
Goddard holds citizenship in both the United Kingdom and Japan and previously made appearances on the Japan U16 team.
