Valour FC announced Friday that the club has signed Canadian goalkeeper Jonathan Viscosi, in addition to acquiring Noah Verhoeven on loan for the 2024 season and transferring goalkeeper Rayane Yesli to Atlético Ottawa.

Viscosi, 32, joins Valour FC from Vaasan Palloseura (Finnish first tier), where he made eight appearances, conceding five goals.

The Ottawa-born goalkeeper has accumulated 153 professional appearances over a decade-long career. He has played in a variety of different countries across Europe and North America, including the National League in the U.K. as well as in Sweden, Finland and the United States.

“Rayane was good for us, he’s a bright young man and I wish him the best of luck, 100 per cent, and I think he has a bright future,” Valour head coach Phil Dos Santos told “But the truth is that we also saw the opportunity of adding a bit of leadership and experience to our lineup, and that’s what Jonathan is. He’s a very vocal, very commanding goalkeeper, he likes to control his box well. I think that he’s a good shot-stopper, he’s a little bit more pragmatic with his feet, he’s someone that minimizes risks and I like that side of him.”
