Cameron Lancaster has signed a multi-year deal with Louisville City in the USL Championship, ending his time with Nashville SC. Lancaster spent the 2020 season on loan with Louisville, scoring 12 goals en route to a First Team All-League spot and finishing the year as an MVP finalist.
Lancaster joined Nashville from Louisville on an MLS contract in 2019, where he played in gold in Nashville’s final year in the USL Championship. Injuries severely limited his time on the field, managing just 730 minutes in the league, where he scored five and assisted one.
Ahead of Nashville’s MLS debut, Lancaster was loaned back to Louisville City, where he had previously set the league record for goals in a single season with 26. Back in Louisville, Lancaster lead the club to their sixth consecutive conference final, where they fell to Tampa Bay Rowdies.
Nashville’s current forward group included Daniel Ríos, who also played on the 2019 USL side, and Jhonder Cádiz, on loan from Benfica as a designated player.
Nashville will take on fellow expansion side Inter Miami CF on Friday night at Nissan Stadium in the play-in round of the MLS Cup Playoffs.
