Columbia continues to be a big market for Major League Soccer. SBI is reporting the league has signed three new players, all from Columbia and all defenders today.

America De Cali central defender Edward Zea, Deportivo Cali central defender Pablo Escobar and Deportes Quindio central defender Hanyer Mosquera have been signed by MLS and have already had discovery claims placed on them by various MLS teams.

These three follow a similar path as Wilman Conde, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Jamison Olave to MLS.

The three defenders are all young (Escobar, 22, Zea, 19, and Mosquera, 22) and are big time prospects.

No official word yet on which clubs will get these players. SBI did mention Philadelphia as one of the clubs that placed a claim on one of them.
