Rowdies Sign Forward Steeven Dos Santos
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Rowdies have signed forward Steevan Dos Santos to a one-year deal with a club option for 2022.
With the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in 2020, Dos Santos had 10 starts with 5 goals and one assist.
"Steevan is a player that I have played and coached against, and I am pleased that he is now on our side," said Rowdies Head Coach Neill Collins. "He was a key member of Pittsburgh's attack for the past two years and was one of our fiercest opponents. I think Steevan will add something to our team that we have not had before, his ability to multitask."
Dos Santos, 31, is a Cape Verde native who played for the country's national team in 2013.
"For me, it would be an honor and a privilege to represent an organization of the caliber and quality such as Tampa Bay Rowdies," Dos Santos said. "First off, I'd like to thank Neil and Lee for the opportunity to continue to play in the USL Championship while representing the Rowdies. I promise the organization and the Rowdies' fans that I will work hard and give it my best. I look forward to helping bring the USL Championship home to Tampa, alongside my teammates."
More new and returning players will be announced in the coming weeks. The Rowdies roster now stands at (13) players.
