Rapids Bringing in Cristian Canga?

There are multiple reports of the Rapids bringing in Colombian forward Cristian Canga from Athletico Huila.  I think this is pretty solid as the player himself (it appears) retweeted one of the stories.  Rumor right now is that it will be a loan.

Canga is a 22 year old forward who's spent most of his short career with Athletico Huila.  He's had limited first team minutes but he is a part of Colombia's U-23/Olympic team, which means we can expect him to miss time this summer for Rio.

If this report is accurate then I expect him to be a depth signing similar to what Badji should have been last year.  I doubt we'd bring him in on loan to loan him to Charlotte so he won't follow Badji's path directly but I'm not expecting this to be a major signing for the 2016 season.
