Canadian Premier League side Edmonton have completed the signing of highly-rated Peruvian winger Raúl Tito, the club have confirmed. Edmonton had been tracking the player in the last few months and have had up to two bids for him rejected in the past by his former club Santos Nasca. The deal to transfer the 23-year-old winger was initially agreed last year but due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, coupled with the series of world-wide lockdowns, he was unable to travel to Canada to complete the final details of the transfer.
