Tonight, the Terez Paylor at the KC Star is reporting the finalization of a contract with Julio Cesar Santos Correa, the Brazilian center back. Last week, Robb Heineman posted on Twitter that Cesar and Milos Stojcev would be announced within the week. Well we have the first one of those now according to the Star. Cesar has played all over North and Central America, and Europe. He'd most recently been with Maritimo in Portugal. Cesar has never spent more than 4 years at one club, the most appearances he's made for one club was 60 with Real Valladolid in Spain back in the late 90's. His career has been going on since before MLS actually started play in 1996.
Cesar looks set to battle with Matt Besler and Shavar Thomas for the two center back spots. Although in the article Peter Vermes says that Cesar is not 90 minutes fit yet, so if he does end up starting this weekend against Chivas he seems unlikely to go 90 minutes.
