NEW YORK (AP) — Slovakian forward Adam Nemec has agreed to a contract with Major League Soccer's New York City FC.

The 29-year-old Nemec had spent the last 2 1/2 seasons with Union Berlin in the German second division after stints with Slovakia's MSK Zilina (2004-07), Germany's Erzgebirge Aue (2007-08), Belgium's Genk (2008-09), and Germany's Kaiserslautern (2009-11) and Ingolstadt (2012). Nemec has two goals in 14 international appearances. The agreement was announced Monday.

“Adam is a different type of striker than we have on the roster so far which gives us a different dimension up front and options on how our forward line can play,” NYCFC sporting director Claudio Reyna said in a team statement. “It’s important to have players with a range of strengths and attributes, he’s a strong and powerful athlete and will add a real goal scoring threat to our team. We’re delighted to add Adam to an already strong group of strikers.”

Nemec joins club captain David Villa, 2015 MLS SuperDraft first-round pick Khiry Shelton, former U.S. youth international Tony Taylor and second-year striker Patrick Mullins in the expansion club's stable of attackers.
