After a summer of action with the Lehigh Valley United Sonic in the PDL, Gaoussou Bakayoko has joined the Rochester Rhinos as the USL regular season approaches its end.

Bakayoko, who played six games for the Sonic during the 2016 PDL campaign, adds depth to a Rhinos team fighting to keep a USL Playoffs spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

“Gaousso brings a physical presence in the middle of the park. A good passer, but an even better ball winner.” Rhinos Head Coach Bob Lilley said.

The 25-year-old defensive midfielder, who hails from the Ivory Coast, played a season in the Cape Verdean league before competing in the PDL this summer.

The Rhinos are currently seventh in the USL’s Eastern Conference, and they will play the Pittsburgh Riverhounds at 6:05 p.m. ET from Rochester Rhinos Stadium on Saturday.
