Azira was exchanged for defender Jorge Corrales from Chicago – a former Cuban international.

This is the fourth MLS club Azira is plying his trade for after featuring for the Seattle Sounders (2014-15), Colorado Rapids (2016-18) and the Impact (2018-19).

At Impact this season, Azira played the club’s first 15 games this season, with 13 starters before he left for international duty at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
