The 24-year-old – who can play both right-back and center-back – has signed with Herons until 2024 with a club option for an extra year. Because he has an American passport, McVey will not take an international place on Inter Miami’s list.

“He is a versatile defender with a good size who can fill a number of positions effectively. He also has a US passport, so he will not occupy an international roster spot, which will allow us to have flexibility as we continue to build a competition list. for the 2022 MLS season. “

McVey has spent his entire career so far in Sweden, played for Dalkurd FF and Elfsborg, and made 58 senior matches in total, including five in this season’s UEFA Europa Conference League qualifiers.

He is without a limit for Sweden at senior level, but played and did once for the U18 team against Austria already in 2014.

McVey will offer a strong and versatile presence in Phil Neville’s defense. A much-needed one too, after Inter Miami recently allowed midfielders Leandro Gonzalez Pirez and Christian Makoun to leave River Plate and Charlotte FC respectively. Ryan Shawcross also announced that he is retiring from the game.

Lewis Morgan, Rodolfo Pizarro, Julian Carranza and Kelvin Leerdam have also been among the high-profile departures from DRV PNK Stadium this off-season as Neville makes a complete overhaul of his playlist ahead of the 2022 MLS season.
