The New England Revolution have added goalkeeper Djordje Petrović to the roster for an undisclosed fee. 

The player joins from Serbian SuperLiga club FK Čukarički on a three-year Major League Soccer contract with an additional one-year option.

“Djordje is a welcomed addition to our roster. He is a young goalkeeper with excellent physical qualities and potential,” sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said in a release.

“His play in the Serbian SuperLiga has been impressive, and we feel he has a great future with our club.”

During three seasons with FK Čukarički, the goalkeeper recorded 33 clean sheets with a 0.99 goals-against average across 86 appearances. He also featured in four UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifiers and leaves the Serbian side in third place on the league table. 

Internationally, he has one cap for Serbia, managing a clean sheet on his debut in a friendly against the Dominican Republic in January 2021. 

His move to the Revolution comes as headliner Matt Turner is set to depart for Arsenal FC following a transfer. He joins Brad Knighton, Earl Edwards Jr and Jacob Jackson as a goalkeeper option for Bruce Arena.
