Reports out of Brazil indicate that Charlotte FC will be signing 19-year-old defender
João Pedro Reginaldo on a one year loan with an option for purchase.
João Pedro typically plays as a centerback but is also capable of playing as a left back. He currently plays with Athletico Paranaense's U20 team and has spent time with the Brazil U18 National Team and Juventude's U20 squad. This signing will likely be for the MLS Next Pro squad in a similar situation to the signing of midfielder David Poręba.
