Atlanta United announced today it has signed defender Fernando Meza via transfer from Club Tijuana using Targeted Allocation Money. He will occupy an international roster slot and be added to Atlanta’s roster pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P-1 Visa.
“Fernando is an athletic, ball-playing center back who immediately strengthens our defense,” Atlanta United Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra said. “He brings more than a decade of top-flight experience in Argentina, Chile and Mexico and will be a veteran presence for our backline.”
Meza, 29, joins Atlanta United with 12 years of professional experience in Argentina, Chile and Mexico.
