Florida-born, the 21-year-old moved to the UK to join Premier League Everton in 2017, where he spent four seasons before joining Swansea in 2021.

 

He has also amassed nine caps for the United States at under-14,15 and under-16 level and has three caps for Denmark at under-19 level.

 

Nico is the brother of popular Colls centre-half Luca Defreitas-Hansen and has been on trial with the club throughout pre-season.

 

Colls` manager Brad Cooke told http://athertoncollieries.co.uk: “I’m absolutely delighted with the signing of Nico! It wasn’t expected, we helped him find his feet after being released from Swansea, and after coming in with us he really enjoyed the environment, and he’s a player you simply just can’t turn down.

 

“Nico has an unbelievable pedigree, with Everton, Swansea, the United States and Denmark, and for us to capture two exciting young professional footballers in the last week shows the progression of this football club.

 

“I have no doubt that Nico will have a great career as a professional footballer. Thankfully, we will be part of that journey!”
