ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Silverbacks have acquired a new defender on a season-long loan.
Cristian Quiñones comes to Atlanta from his native Colombia, where he has played at professional and youth international levels.
The 20-year-old center back most recently played three seasons for the Independiente Santa Fe in the Colombian first divisions; before that, he was part of two club teams, Deportivo Cali and Independiente Medellín.
Quiñones recently represented his country at the U-15 and U-17 international levels, participating in several South American tournaments.
"We're very excited to have Cristian with us this season," said Silverbacks director of soccer Rodrigo Rios.
