- Harvey has made 15 appearances for Inter’s MLS Next Pro academy team
- He’s also featured in club friendlies and a U.S. Open Cup match this season
According to a team statement, the fullback’s contract will run through the 2024 MLS season, with a club option to extend the contract to either 2025 or 2026.

‘Harvey has developed well over these last two seasons with Inter Miami CF II. We’re pleased with his progress as a young player in our system and feel his versatility will offer us cover in a number of areas,’ Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director Chris Henderson said.

He’s completed 77% of his passes and bagged two assists in that time frame, won 14 tackles, and has four yellow cards to his name.
