Chivas USA have announced veteran Canada defender Ante Jazic has inked a contract. The MLS rights to Jazic, a three-year veteran of the league, were acquired by Chivas USA on Jan. 15 in a draft-day trade with the LA Galaxy, where the left-sided player made 44 regular-season appearances (41 starts) from 2006-2008. Per league and team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

"Ante Jazic's versatility and international experience make him a great addition to our squad. Ante can play in the back and in midfield and gives us added depth on the left side. We look forward to his contributions to Chivas USA in 2009," said Chivas USA Head Coach Preki.
