- Dejan Jakovic, Player Signings
The Black-and-Red have added to their defense yet again. Instead of going with another South American like a year ago they looked north to Canada.
DC United has paid a transfer fee to Red Star Belgrade for Canadian defender Dejan Jakovic, according to Steve Goff. The Canadian U-23 defender should arrive with the club next week, pending visa approval.
Jakovic attened the University of Alabama-Birmingham before joining Red Star Belgrade a year ago. He made only starts for the club.
The move means he will compete with Devon McTavish and Greg Janicki for the starting center defender roles.
