FC Edmonton‘s latest signing will likely have little trouble adjusting to life in Alberta’s capital as he is no stranger to the soccer club.

On Wednesday, the Canadian Premier League club announced it had reached a deal with left back defender Terique Mohammed for the 2022 season.

Before stints in the League of Ireland Premier Division and with York United of the CPL, the 22-year-old spent some time with FC Edmonton when he was loaned to the club in 2020.

“We’re excited to welcome Terique back,” FC Edmonton head coach Alan Koch said in a news release. “We’re hopeful that this will be a very positive season in his progression on and off the pitch.

“He’s a very talented player that has good technique and the athletic ability to play for us in our system of play.”
