Tomás Conechny, 20, will be added to the Timbers’ roster pending a physical and receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 visa, team officials say.
Conechny will play for the Timbers for the remainder of the 2018 Major League Soccer campaign. At the end of the campaign, the Timbers will have a purchase option.

Conechny will occupy an international slot on the Timbers roster. He made his professional debut on Oct. 16, 2016 with San Lorenzo.
He has gone on to make a total of 14 appearances during his time with the club. During the 2017-18 season, Conechny made seven appearances, including three starts.
