MIAMI – Inter Miami CF announced Thursday the signing of Major League Soccer veteran defender-midfielder Brek Shea.
Shea, 30, is fit to play at the MLS Is Back tournament in Orlando, Fla. next month, the club said.
“Brek is a player who we know very well from previous MLS experiences that brings a lot of attacking threat and defensive solidity,” Inter Miami CF COO and sporting director Paul McDonough said in a statement. “He has been training and recovering from an injury, showing he is in his regular form and able to contribute to the First Team.”
The 6-3, 181-lb. Shea joins Inter Miami after playing for club and country. The College Station, Texas native was a member of the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup winning side.
He has played in more 220 MLS matches and more than 80 games on the international stage across all levels.
Shea was signed by Atlanta United for the 2019 season. He appeared in three matches in the team U.S. Open Cup-championship run, as well as 19 regular season games, before suffering a season-ending right knee injury against the Seattle Sounders on July 14.
Shea underwent surgery then, has been recovering at the Inter Miami CF Training Center for the final stage of the process.
