As a former player in the MLS at Seattle Sounders and Minnesota United, Lowe returned to the MLS on a two-year deal with Inter Miami last year. After spending a short time in Egypt at All Ittihad, which was unsuccessful, the Jamaican will once more be looking to stake his claim in the top-tier league in America.
Sporting Director Ernst Tanner is thrilled with his club’s latest acquisition of the Jamaican player, in particular, because of the player’s tremendous athletic abilities and defensive capabilities. As Tanner sees it, Lowe’s acquisition makes perfect sense in a season that will see the Philadelphia Union playing more football than ever before.
“He’s an athletic, quick player, and we expect him to be an important piece of our defensive unit,” Tanner stated on the club’s official website.
The son of former Reggae Boyz star Onadi Lowe, Damian Lowe has made a name for himself by cementing his place in Reggae Boyz starting eleven. He will join his national teammate and captain, Andre Blake, who has been staring at the club and voted the best goalkeeper of the year multiple times.
As a centre-back, Lowe played 28 games for Inter Miami last season and scored one goal in those 28 appearances. During his international career, he has won 48 caps and scored two goals for the senior Reggae Boyz.
In an announcement earlier this week, the club said Lowe had been acquired for US$225,000 in 2023 General Allocation Money and a 2024 natural first-round draft pick. Inter Miami CF also receives Homegrown Priority over Shanyder Borgelin, with Philadelphia retaining a percentage of any future transfers over Borgelin, according to the club’s website.
