“We’ve been following Kervin for maybe over a year and we’re really excited to get him here,” Minnesota head coach Adrian Heath said in a release.
“We think he’s got a lot of upside. Another really good piece for us to add to our midfield group and gives us that extra depth as well. Arriaga is another piece that will be contending within a deep squad for first-team starting spots. We think there’s a lot more to come from him.”
The midfielder has spent his entire career in the Honduran league, with more than 100 professional appearances between Marathon and Club Atletico Platense. Internationally, Arriaga has made eight appearances for Honduras during their World Cup qualifying campaign.
Minnesota kick off their 2022 MLS campaign on February 26 when visiting the Philadelphia Union.
