OpTic Gaming has finalized a deal to add AD carry Noh "Arrow" Dong-hyeon to its League of Legends roster, sources close to the team and player told ESPN.

The former Phoenix1 player will occupy one of two team import slots, with the other to be filled in either top, mid or support roles. The acquisition was earlier reported by Inven.

Arrow will join Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham as the second player on the OpTic roster. Akaadian was bought out from Echo Fox on Tuesday, sources told ESPN. OpTic chose not comment to on this report.

The team is currently being assembled by manager Romain Bigeard, head coach Thomas "Zaboutine" Si-Hassen and OpTic's parent company, Infinite Esports & Entertainment.

OpTic Gaming was accepted into the League of Legends Championship Series in October as one of the four new teams including Houston Rockets-owned Clutch Gaming, Golden State Warriors' Golden Guardians and 100 Thieves, which is owned by Dan Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
