CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

FC Cincinnati has signed former English Premier League defender Justin Hoyte for the 2017 season.

“To add a player that has Premier League experience is a major addition to our squad,” Head Coach Alan Koch said. “Justin’s personality and humbleness for someone who has already achieved a significant amount in the game is enriching for our group. Our younger players can use him as a mentor as they grow their careers. I also know that Justin is incredibly motivated to be successful here in North America and I look forward to working with him. He is a versatile defender and will compete for a starting position in our team immediately.”

Hoyte, hailing from London, helped lead Arsenal to a Premier League Championship in the 2003-04 season. Hoyte has played in 80 premier league games and has seen the field in nearly 300 games as a professional.
