 In a surprise move, Leon announced midfielder Omar Fernandez as a new acquisition for this upcoming tournament on Wednesday. In a tweet that appeared on the club's official account, Fernandez was presented as their latest signing. He joins from Puebla and his transfer was unexpected, given how he had just renewed his contract with Puebla a few days ago. Details on the agreement were not disclosed. 

The Colombian is a versatile attacking midfielder, who was one of the best elements at the position this past Clausura, and overall he registered 22 assists with 5 goals in his four years at Puebla. He now joins teammate Santiago Ormeno, who was just announced a few days ago and was with him during his stint at Puebla as well. The pair definitely know each other well, and Leon is hoping that this can help the two gel right from the start and bring Leon success in the upcoming seasons.
