Phoenix Rising FC signs Irakoze Donasiyano on loan from MLS side Nashville SC
Phoenix Rising FC announced on Friday the loan signing of midfielder Irakoze “Koze” Donasiyano from MLS side Nashville SC for the remainder of the 2022 USL Championship campaign.
However, Nashville retains the right to recall Donasiyano at any point this season.
PRFC also announced that the club and midfielder Jonathan Levin mutually agreed to part ways.
Donasiyano, 24, was taken No. 20 overall out of Virginia in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft and made his debut by playing 27 minutes as a second half substitute off the bench against New York Red Bulls.
The Tanzanian also played 14 minutes for USLC side OKC Energy FC after being loaned out from Nashville for the remainder of the 2021 season.
“We are very thankful and excited to add Koze to our team,” Phoenix Rising manager Rick Schantz said in a press release. “We have had a few injuries as of late and I feel we couldn’t be getting a more talented, humble, hard-working player. He is a great competitor and will help us immediately.
“A situation like this could be truly beneficial to all parties: Nashville, Phoenix and especially Koze.”
