Waterford FC have announced the signing of Portuguese-born midfielder Carlos Wilson.

The midfielder, an Angolan international, joins the clubs after a recent spell with Portuguese side União da Madeira. He’s also had spells in Spain, with Deportivo de La Coruña, Belgium and Greece. 

The club can also confirm that John Kavanagh has returned to Cork City after the completion of his loan deal.

Wilson becomes Waterford's latest signing and will go straight into the squad pending international clearance.

Speaking after signing today, the 29-year-old told the club's website: "I am very pleased to be joining Waterford FC.

"I had a great welcome from the staff and the boys since I've come in. My first impression was positive and I was blown away by the depth the coaches go into in training.

"The football club has a very positive atmosphere and the boys get along very well with brilliant team spirit on and off the field. Waterford is a great club to be at and I think I will learn a lot here."
