ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando City B announced on Wednesday it had signed midfielder Danny Deakin to a USL contract.
“We’re really happy Danny will be joining us full-time,” OCB Head Coach Anthony Pulis said. “Being with us will give him an opportunity to earn more playing time and continue his development.”
Deakin was Orlando City’s Third Round selection in the 2017 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. Deakin was signed to a MLS contract on March 3 before being loaned to OCB on March 24. The 23-year-old has made one start in three appearances for OCB.
The Sheffield, England, native finished his last two collegiate seasons at the University of South Carolina, where he was a two-time All-Conference USA First Team selection.
