DETROIT – Detroit City FC announced on Tuesday it had added Dominic Gasso to its squad as a USL Academy signing for the remainder of the 2022 USL Championship season. The transaction is pending league and federation approval.
An 18-year-old native of Grand Blanc, Mich., Gasso has previously competed this year for Le Rouge’s Academy team at the USL Academy Cup in March. He had previously competed for Vardar Academy and the Flint City Bucks Academy before joining the Detroit City FC U19 Boys Academy team.
As a USL Academy signing, Gasso will retain his college eligibility while being eligible to compete for DCFC’s First Team in the USL Championship as well as in the USL Academy League.
Gasso is the second player to be rostered as a USL Academy signing by Detroit City FC following Bosh Tanyi, who signed prior to the start of the season. Tanyi has made six appearances in the USL Championship this season for Le Rouge, recording one chance created and winning 4 of 8 duels.
