The New York Cosmos announced today that the club has signed right back Ryan Richter from the Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer (MLS). As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

Richter, a Southampton, Pa. native, last suited up for the Union's United Soccer League (USL) affiliate, Bethlehem Steel FC, during its inaugural season. He led the team in appearances (28), goals (5) and assists (4). 

Before moving back to his home state, Richter helped pilot Ottawa Fury FC to an NASL Fall Season title and Championship Final berth in 2015, appearing in 30 games. "Ryan has great experience at this level," said Cosmos Head Coach Giovanni Savarese. 

"He is a versatile player who can contribute to our push for another championship." "It's exciting to be back in the NASL," Richter said. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for this club. Now it's time to hit the ground running and help the team achieve its goals this season." 

Toronto FC initially loaned Richter to Ottawa in 2014, after the defender made 13 starts in MLS for the Reds. He was selected by Philadelphia as the No. 5 pick in the 2011 MLS Supplemental Draft. An alumnus of La Salle University, Richter won a USL Pro championship with the Charleston Battery in 2012, appearing in 24 matches and scoring two goals.
