Charlotte FC have signed midfielder David Poreba to an MLS NEXT Pro contract on loan from Polish top-flight side Stal Mielec, the club announced Monday.


Poreba will stay with CLTFC’s development side through 2023, with the club holding the option to make the transfer permanent at the end of that period.

The American and Polish dual national is the first signing for Charlotte FC’s MLS NEXT Pro side, which is due to begin play in the 2023 season as one of eight extra MLS clubs to field teams in the league.

“David is a talented player who has shown his potential at the professional level throughout the Stal Mielec system. He is the exact type of player we are passionate about developing and we’re delighted to sign the Club’s first-ever player,” Charlotte FC’s MLS NEXT Pro president Darrius Barnes said in a club press release. “2023 is a groundbreaking year for player development and player progression at Charlotte FC and we look forward to continuing to build out our MLS NEXT Pro roster this winter.”

Poreba, who just recently turned 20, joins Charlotte having spent the last 18 months with Stal Mielec, where he made two appearances in Poland’s top professional division, the Ekstraklasa, and a further two outings in the Fortuna Polish Cup.

“David is a good player with great potential to make an impact in MLS NEXT Pro,” said Charlotte FC’s MLS NEXT Pro head coach Jose Tavares. “We are looking forward to the start of our inaugural MLS NEXT Pro season as we continue to bring talented players like David to Charlotte FC to become the future of the Club.”
