Chivas USA's Avila hints at Guadalajara move

Chivas USA midfielder Eric Avila has suggested that he will soon be on the move to the MLS outfits parent club Chivas de Guadalajara.

The 25-year old has been training with the Liga MX club ahead of the Apertura campaign and suggested after the inter-club practice match on the weekend that he will be making the move from California to Guadalajara.

"It's something I really want," Avila said. "I really appreciate the opportunity to practice with them and hopefully I can stay.

"I felt nervous at first, but my teammates made me feel comfortable. Hopefully in the weeks to come I can get more settled in."

He added: "I'm very excited. Guadalajara is a big team and just for me to practice with them is unbelievable. Luckily they've given me a chance.

"I love my team here at Chivas USA, they've been a family to me. But luckily this opportunity came up, so we talked about it and decided to go forward with it. I'll train with them [in Mexico] and see what happens."
