Chivas USA have officially signed El Salvadoran midfielder Osael Romero.
The 23-year old joins on loan from El Salvador club Vista Hermosa and will join the Red-and-White in pre-season in the next two weeks and will be included on the roster pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and Visa.
Chivas head coach Martin Vásquez was delighted to announce the capture of Romero who has managed 37 caps for his country.
“Osael is a perfect fit for our club this season, and we’re excited to have him at Chivas USA,” said Vásquez. “He’s a young, talented player, and we’ve all seen his accomplishments with the El Salvador National Team. We look forward to having him play a big part for us in 2010.”
Romero added: “I’m happy to have this opportunity with Chivas USA. I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing in MLS, which is a very competitive league. I’m familiar with the Los Angeles area, where I had the opportunity to score with the El Salvador National Team in tough international matches. I’m excited to be back in a community that has always supported me and my national team."
