Louis Crayton

Just as reported earlier in the week, DC United is in discussions with an international keeper. This morning more details of who and where that keeper is from have come out thanks to Steve Goff. United is in talks with Liberian international Louis Crayton.

The 30-year old Crayton has spent the past 11 years in the Swiss leagues with eight different clubs, most recently with FC Basel as a backup.

The deal isn’t done yet according to Goff and his sources.

After looking over his career stats I have to question exactly how good of a signing this would be for the club. I know they want to push current starter Zach Wells and after they released keeper Jose Carvallo they had to create some competition.

What do you all make of this news? Is Crayton the right guy to push Wells?
