Update: Since the time of publication, Unicorns of Love has announced the addition of Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir to the team's starting roster.

Unicorns of Love has signed former Dark Passage jungler Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir, sources close to the organization and player tell ESPN. The move, which was finalized last week, is currently pending Riot Games' approval.

Xerxe will fill the vacant jungle position left by former jungler Kang "Move" Min-su. Move recently left the lineup after UoL's first place finish at Intel Extreme Masters Oakland on Nov. 20. While the contract for Move's replacement has been signed, as confirmed by a statement on Unicorns of Love's Facebook page Sunday, League of Legends tournament organizer Riot Games has yet to approve the signing. This process can take several weeks after a team files for the player addition.

Xerxe, of Romania, became eligible to compete in the League Championship Series on Nov. 5, when he turned 17 years old, the age requirement to compete in the league. Xerxe has previously played in the Turkish Champions League, competing with 2016 summer champions Dark Passage and Crew e-Sports Club.

Earlier in the year, Unicorns of Love nearly qualified for the League of Legends World Championship. The team ultimately loss to Splyce in the European regional finals, failing to clinch a berth into the annual capstone event.

Unicorns of Love have not responded to a request for comment.
