SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio FC has acquired defender Diedie Traore via transfer from SAS Epinal, the club announced on Thursday.

Traore joins SAFC after spending time with both LA Galaxy II and the club’s U-19 academy team. Overall, he appeared in 18 matches (16 starts) for LA Galaxy II, tallying six assists and a goal over that span.

“We are thrilled to welcome Diedie to the team,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “He is a powerful and explosive left-wingback who excels in attacking and defending one vs. one duel – an ideal fit for our game model. Diedie is an exceptional talent who is highly motivated and has the potential to have a breakout season.”
