American midfielder Zico Bailey has departed FC Helsingør with immediate effect, signing with Major League Soccer’s FC Cincinnati. The parting of ways was reached by mutual consent between the Club and player.

“Zico is a good, technical player. One which we see a bright future forin FC Helsingør’s first team,” said FC Helsingør Chief Scout, Brian Gellert. “He, like several other young players, has suffered from the fact that our team has performed as well as they have and that the competition in the midfield is extremely sharp.

“Zico received an offer from an American club where he is likely to be closer to home and to having more playing time than here. His desire to return to the United States was not something we as a club would have wanted to stand in the way of. We wish Zico good luck with his career, and thank him for his time with FCH.
