Erico De Sousa joined the club in 2017 and he recently signed a contract extension during the summer of 2019.
De Sousa, a former Portugal Under-19 international, came to England at the age of 10, and he began his career with Manchester City's Academy as a 15-year-old.
He then moved to the Barnsley Academy, before having a spell in the Slovenian first division where he played regular football.
A move back to England followed as he spent time playing non-league football, most notably for Tranmere Rovers.
De Sousa made his Stanley debut in a 3-2 win against Middlesbrough in the EFL Trophy on 19th September 2017.
