QUOTING WARMING ON MARKS
"Dani is an excellent personality and player with a lot of upside who is the type of center back that can help us win. He knows what areas he needs to improve in and we look forward to helping him work on those areas in his game. We needed an experienced center back to join the team with the loss of seniors Akil Howard and Martin Seiler."
