NYCFC signs winger Ismael Tajouri from Austria Vienna

New York City FC signed winger Ismael Tajouri from Austria Vienna on Friday.

Tajouri, 23, has played his entire career in the Austrian Bundesliga and scored 10 goals in all competitions last season. This season his only goal came against AEK Athens in the Europa League in September.

"We wanted to add more power, pace and skill in one-v-ones to our frontline and Ismael really fulfills this criteria -- he is a very talented player who will compete for minutes," NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira said.

"He's got good experience for his young age which he can bring to this team and I'm really looking forward to working with him."

Austria Vienna said his contract was terminated six months early by mutual consent and wished him well in the United States. Transfer fees were disclosed.

Tajouri was born in Switzerland but previously represented Libya's under-20 national team.

His signing follows NYCFC's capture of defender Cedric Hountondji on Thursday.
