Ivorian center back Benjamin Angoua will soon join the New England Revolution, according to a report by Ouest France. A second story says that Angoua has signed a three-year deal with the Revs.
Angoua, 30, was most recently with Guingamp of France, having joined in 2014. He has played a total of 62 games with the club, largely as a center back. He has, however, shown the ability to play on the right side.
Before Guingamp, Angoua was with Valenciennes of France (2010-2014), Budapest Honved FC of Hungary (2006-2010), and Africa Sports of the Ivory Coast (2004-2006).
Angoua has represented the Ivory Coast 17 times at the international level, including appearances at the 2008 Olympic Games. He has scored one goal for the Elephants.
On Monday, the Revs announced that they would soon be adding two international defenders, though the names were omitted. Two days later, the club revealed that Antonio Mlinar Delamea had signed with the club. The second center back could be Angoua, though we’ll have to wait for confirmation.
