Inter Miami CF have acquired center back Nicolas Freire on loan from Pumas UNAM of Liga MX.

The 29-year-old Argentina international beefs up the defense for Miami's star-studded lineup.

The deal announced Tuesday runs through the 2024 MLS season. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"Nicolas offers us a sturdy defensive presence who we know will work hard and help command the backline," sporting director Chris Henderson said in a release.

"He's been successful in several high-quality competitions throughout his career, and we're excited to bring him onboard to help us compete for titles in 2024. We believe his experience will be an asset for us."

Freire posted six goals and two assists in 129 matches since joining Pumas in 2019.

Led by Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Inter Miami will open the 2024 MLS season on Feb. 21 against visiting Real Salt Lake.
