Who's Adding Who - Columbus Crew - Update 1

Updates in Red


D Corey Ashe (12/18/15 - free agency) - Ashe had spent his entire MLS career with the Houston Dynamo until being dealt to Orlando City midseason last year. The two-time MLS All-Star has appeared in over 200 MLS matches since his 2007 debut, and tallied three assists in just nine appearances with Orlando City in 2015.
M Emil Larsen (1/22/16 - free) - Larsen joins the Crew by way of Danish Superliga's Odense Boldklub. The 24 year-old winger has extensive experience with Denmark's youth National Teams and has been capped five times with the senior National Team dating back to 2012.
F Conor Casey (1/26/16 - free agency) - While Casey is no longer the prolific scorer who tallied 40 goals for the Rapids between 2008 and 2010, even at 34 years old, he's still a threat to score. Despite playing only 340 minutes for the Union in 2015, Casey scored three goals and added an assist. The 2010 MLS Cup MVP and 2009 member of the MLS Best XI has 71 career goals, good for 22nd-most all-time.
D Amro Tarek (2/3/16 - loan from Real Betis) - Born in LA, the former Egyptian Youth International signed a four-year deal with Real Betis last July. His loan is currently through June with an option to extend the loan through December. Primarily a left back, the 23 year old has had professional stints in Germany and Egypt before his move to La Liga in Spain.
M Rodrigo Saravia (2/4/16 - SuperDraft) - The 19th overall pick in this year's Super Draft and Flordia Gulf Coast alum made his international debut with his native Guatemala earlier this month. Saravia was a four year starter with FGCU notching two goals and seven assists in 67 career appearances. He helped lead FGCU to four A-Sun regular season championships, two A-Sun Tournament titles and two berths in the NCAA Championship.
F Ola Kamara (2/4/16 - transfer from Austria Wien) - The 26 year-old Norwegian international will give the Crew the option of starting a pair of Kamaras up top. Kamara spent the 2015 season on loan from Austria Wien (Austria) to Molde FK (Norway) where he finished fourth in the league with 14 goals in 29 appearances. Kamara has scored once for Norway in a friendly against Moldova in 2014.
