Toronto, ON - York9 FC is extremely pleased to announce the signing of Felix N'sa on a multi-year contract.

A strong and combative presence, the 17-year-old can operate in the centre of defence or as a deep-lying midfielder. N'sa arrives at the club having most recently been with Panellinios Montreal FC.

A younger brother of Chrisnovic N'Sa, who contributed some eye-catching displays at The Island Games with HFX Wanderers and was a subsequent Under-21 Canadian Player of the Year nominee for 2020, Felix is the latest off-season addition by York9 Managing Consultant Angus McNab and joins fellow new boys Ryan Lindsay, Jordan Wilson and Julian Ulbricht as the 2021 roster begins to take shape.

"I am very excited to start my professional career with York9," N'sa says.

"I thank my family, my coaches, my agency which has always supported me and my almighty God for everything he's done for me. I am ready to give everything and contribute to the future success of the club."

McNab believes N'sa to be an uncut diamond and is thrilled to invest in his future.

"Felix is a player that came across our radar in the late summer/early fall," McNab says.

"He's got huge potential and understands he's going to need to put in the work to earn a job with our squad. His versatility is a huge asset and we'll work to develop him into the best possible player. He has experience at right-back, centre back and also played as a 6, but the best thing about the footage we saw of Felix was that he repeatedly ended up as the standout guy on the park regardless of the position he played. We've got work to do in teaching him the discipline of staying on his feet and not rushing into a tackle, but he'll get the best possible advice from Jimmy and Stally: two legendary Canadian internationals who've operated as defenders/midfielders at the highest possible level of the game."
