Reggae Boyz midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson has signed a one-year contract with United Soccer League (USL) side Charlotte Independence.
Watson has been without a club for the past six months, after he was released by Major League Soccer team New England Revolution, who he represented over the past two seasons.
Watson made 27 starts in 41 appearances with a goal and an assist for the Revolution.
Independence head coach Mike Jeffries said the Jamaican will help to add a lot more depth and experience to his team.
“Je-Vaughn is a player we think adds to the group and gives us some flexibility in terms of how we play and how we organise the group,” said Jeffries in an interview with USL.com.
“He’s played throughout the midfield and the backline, so one of the things he brings is versatility and experience, as well. With Houston, Dallas and New England, he was a successful player,” Jeffries added.
The 34-year-old Watson, made his international debut for the Reggae Boyz against El Salvador in a friendly international in July 2008.
The former Garvey Maceo and Sporting Central Academy player has netted four goals in 70 appearances for the Reggae Boyz.
