According to sources, Charlotte FC are finalizing a deal to sign Brazilian midfielder Júnior Urso who has been with the team as a trialist during preseason. While the deal is not done, sources indicate it is in its final stages.

Urso previously played for Orlando City on two different stints and had a career throughout the tiers of Brazilian football since 2009 along with time in China. With Orlando City, Urso won the 2022 US Open Cup and finished as Supporters Shield runners up in 2023.

Urso primarily plays as a defensive midfielder and will provide further depth in that position that will allow other midfielders to press forward more often.
