Austin FC have signed winger Washington Corozo on a six-month loan from Peruvian top-flight side Sporting Cristal, in a deal that includes a transfer option. 

Corozo arrives after spending the 2021/2022 season on loan with Liga MX side Pumas UNAM, where he managed eight goals in 44 appearances throughout the Apertura and Clausura. The winger also featured in both legs of the 2022 Concacaf Champions League final against the Seattle Sounders. 

“We’re delighted to welcome Washington to Austin,” sporting director Claudio Reyna said in a release. 

“We look at every transfer window as an opportunity to improve the squad, and feel that Washington’s dynamic skill set and speed in wide areas will do just that.”

Corozo kicked off his career with Independiente del Valle in 2015, spending five years with the club before making his move to Sporting Cristal. He has since contributed nine goals to the Peruvian top-flight side in 42 appearances since 2020.
