The Colorado Rapids have signed defender Alex Gersbach from the French Ligue 2 side Grenoble Foot 38.
The three-year deal announced Monday for the 25-year-old Australian includes a club option for a fourth year.
"We're delighted to continue reinforcing our roster with a player like Alex," Rapids general manager Padraig Smith said. "Alex is a technical fullback who brings a high level of energy and ability to consistently get up and down the flank. We look forward to welcoming him to Colorado and incorporating him into our group."
Gersbach tallied two assists in 45 appearances over two seasons with GF38. Prior to that, he played professionally in Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and his native Australia.
