Chivas USA announced today the signing of Southern California player Caleb Calvert as a Homegrown Player.
The 16-year-old forward, who has already suited up for the first team in several Reserve League matches, will be eligible for selection in Chivas USA's upcoming visit to Montreal on Sunday, July 7 at 4 pm (PT). Per Major League Soccer and team policy, details of the contract will not be disclosed.
"Caleb Calvert is a very talented player whose development in the Academy we've been following for a long time," explained Director of Soccer Francisco Palencia. "He's a player with very good movement in the entire field and a great finisher inside the box. I believe he has in him all the requirements we need in a forward at Chivas USA.
"The Academy is one of our priorities at Chivas USA so it means a lot to us to have players come out and develop within our system. Signing players from our Academy helps us a lot as they know the system we are implementing from our Youth Teams all the way through the First Team," concluded Palencia.
