EL PASO, Texas – El Paso Locomotive FC announced on Tuesday it had signed forward Jerome Kiesewetter, pending league and federation approval. Kiesewetter has made two appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team, while the native of Berlin, Germany has also played with multiple teams in the Bundesliga.

Kiesewetter played for the United States throughout his youth international career, competing for the U-17, U-20 and U-23 National Team before making his senior debut in January 2016 against Iceland. The 26-year-old came through the academy of Hertha Berlin and competed professionally for Hertha BSC II before joining the Bundesliga’s VfB Stuttgart in 2012.

More recently, Kiesewetter has competed for Fortuna Düsseldorf, where during the 2017-2018 season he helped the side claim the 2. Bundesliga Championship.

“I would like to thank our ownership group and management for giving us the opportunity to bring in a player of Jerome’s caliber,” said Locomotive FC Head Coach Mark Lowry. “He is a player that is going to fit in perfectly with the attacking talent we already have at the club. His experience in Germany and at the International level with the U.S. gives an idea of the type of quality we want here and the desire we all have to make El Paso Locomotive FC an entertaining, attacking, winning team.”
