Major League Soccer (MLS) football club Columbus Crew announced that they have successfully signed Ghanaian defender .

Mensah’s move to the Ohio-based club comes almost a year after he signed a contract with Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala. The club is currently awaiting the player’s International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.

“Jonathan is a physically dominant central defender who at a young age has already proven himself on the world’s biggest stage. We look forward to him making an immediate impact in Columbus,” Crew SC sporting director and head coach Gregg Berhalter said in an official statement.

Mensah will join his fellow Ghanapian right back Harrison Afful to be the second Ghanaian international defender on Columbus’ backline.

“With Jonathan’s vast playing experience and strong character we believe he will fit into our club nicely. We are pleased that Jonathan chose Columbus as a place to continue his development,” Berhalter added.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian international played a vital role with his national team on both youth and professional stages as he won with  the 2009 U-20 World Cup in and took part in two senior World Cups.
