The 24-year-old was a former player with Alajuelense of Costa Rica’s top flight before joining the Western Conference side. Additionally, Cummings has made 46 appearances for the Panama national team.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Fire have signed Uruguayan goalkeeper Jorge Rodrigo Bava as a potential replacement for the departed Sean Johnson.

Bava, 35, is expected to compete with Matt Lampson for the Fire’s no. 1 keeper position in 2017 after Johnson moved on to New York City FC this offseason.
