Real Salt Lake has completed the signing of MLS veteran winger Justin Meram on a deal of unspecified length, according to a club-issued press release.

Meram, 31, joins RSL as a free agent, his option having been declined by Atlanta United following the end of the 2019 season.

From a club-issued release, RSL general manager Elliot Fall:

“Justin is a versatile, accomplished attacking player in our league. He has proven year after year to be productive in multiple roles and that experience will provide excellent value to our young roster.”

Meram’s signing being complete brings RSL’s roster to a near-stable point, though one or two more signings aren’t unlikely at this point. It’s unclear where the club would strengthen, but smart money has it on the attacking side of the ball, with the defense being largely set in both starting material and depth, barring injury.

It’s unclear if Meram has joined on a multiyear deal, but one would readily imagine it’s a two-year contract with a club option for a third year, as would be common practice in MLS.
