In an attempt to bolster the Real Salt Lake attack, the team has signed forward Jefferson Savarino on loan from Zulia in Venezuela. The 20-year-old Venezuelan national has scored 22 goals with 12 assists in 48 matches in the Venezuelan Primera Division.

"Jefferson adds a new dynamic to our roster and continues to challenge the depth of our squad," RSL general manager Craig Waibel said. "He is young and we will assimilate him into the team as quickly as possible, but his performance at Copa Libertadores shows that he is able to compete and deliver at a high level despite his age."

Savarino is expected to participate in RSL’s training Tuesday afternoon.
