Niell Close To Joining D.C. United

D.C. United is in the late stages of negotiations to acquire Argentine forward Franco Niell, sources familiar with the talks said yesterday.

A month after Argentine superstar Juan Sebasti¿n Ver¿n spurned its offer, United is close to adding a lesser-known attacking player in the first of what could be several international signings.

Niell, 24, has spent his entire career with Argentinos Juniors, a first division club from Buenos Aires renowned for developing young talent, and been on the team's senior roster since 2004. He has 10 career goals in 60 league appearances.
