Albanian international Jahmir Hyka joined San Jose Earthquakes. The Quakes announced on Friday that they signed Hyka to a multi-year contract using Targeted Allocation Money, pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate. "Hyka brings an element of surprise to any team and to any match," said Earthquakes general manager Jesse Fioranelli. "Being a player that is very strong technically, he attacks the defense in one-on-one situations without any indication of which way he will go or the pass that he will be making. This means that our strikers will be well served and the element of surprise will allow us to attack from many fronts."
