D.C. United adds Alam on loan

D.C. United announced on Friday that the club has acquired Indonesian midfielder Syamsir Alam on loan from Belgian side C.S. Vise.

Alam has represented Indonesia at various youth levels during his international career, and has enjoyed spells with Penarol, one of the top teams in Uruguay, as well as Dutch Eredivisie clubs Heerenveen and Vitesse.

"Syamsir is a young, attacking midfielder with good technical ability, and we look forward to having him on loan with us," D.C. United general manager Dave Kasper said in a club statement.

The 20-year-old Alam is the second player from Indonesia to be linked with United after Indonesian Under-21 forward Andik Vermansyah trained with the club last September.
