Jean Alexandre signs with Orlando City

Orlando City Soccer Club confirmed on Tuesday that they had re-signed standout midfielder Jean Alexandre to a one-year deal for the 2013 season.

The Haitian-born player was on-loan to the Lions from the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer for 6 matches in the 2012 season scoring 2 goals and making an immediate impact on the squad.

His contract with San Jose expired following last season and he entered into the MLS Superdraft in hopes of signing with a different team. 

Although he was not picked up during the draft he did receive an offer from the Bolton Wanderers of England's League Championship to go on trial which he did over the winter.

He has been back in Florida training for the last several weeks, but his signing helps to strengthen the Lions' midfield heading into the much anticipated I-4 Derby against the Tampa Bay Rowdies at the Citrus Bowl on Saturday.
