The Senegal international Lamine Sane joins the Lions after spending a season and a half with the Bundesliga side

Orlando City has announced the signing of the center back from Werder Bremen.

The 30-year-old joins the Lions after spending a season and a half in Germany with the Bundesliga side.

The defender’s contract was set to expire in the summer and Orlando City was not expected to pay a fee to acquire his services.

“Lamine will significantly strengthen our back line,” Orlando City general manager Niki Budalic said in a club statement.

“He brings tremendous experience at the highest levels of European football and we believe he will fit right in with what we’re trying to build in Orlando.”

Sane made 38 total Bundesliga appearances in 2016-17 and 2017-18 with Bremen, scoring two goals and adding one assist.

The center back has been capped 25 times by the Senegal national team, which is one of five African nations to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
