Pierre “Steeelback” Medjaldi is set to sign with Team Vitality to take the ADC position. The signing is pending Riot approval, though it is unclear exactly when Riot will begin approving new player signings. In a press release, Steeelback had this to say;
“I’m both happy and excited to join Team Vitality. Following a disappointing season, I want more than ever to be part of 2017 World Championship and I feel it’s something that I might be able to do here. Also, even if it didn’t really impact my choice, it would be fantastic to offer to french supporters the first participation of an organization from our country in World Championship since the creation of LCS.”
Steelback becomes the first big signing for a team in the 2017 season coming up after Worlds and All-Stars ends.
