The North American Soccer League's two newest sides, Miami FC and Rayo OKC, have been making a lot of noise during the offseason. That noise continued on Monday, when Rayo announced the signing of a two-time World Cup participant who has played in all of the top three leagues in Europe.

Derek Boateng is a member of the Ghana national team, and was a member of their squad for both the 2006 and 2010 World Cups. He's played at the club level for Fulham in the Premier League, FC Koln in the Bundesliga, and a trio of clubs in Spain. He's also had spells with top sides in the Ukraine and Greece, among others.

The 6'0" midfielder's best days are certainly in the past, but with his pedigree, he's likely still one of the better players currently under contract in North America. There's little doubt he'll help make that team one to watch during it's inaugural season, one which can't kick off soon enough.
