Chivas USA has acquired Nick LaBrocca, a midfielder entering his fifth MLS season, in a trade with Toronto FC, in exchange for forward Alan Gordon.

LaBrocca, 26, has played 89 games (81 starts) in his MLS career, scoring five goals and adding six assists, and will meet the team in Texas ahead of tomorrow's exhibition with FC Dallas.

The Red-and-White have traded away forward Alan Gordon, who scored one goal and had three assists in nine games (eight starts) in 2010, his only season with Chivas USA.

"Nick is an extremely intelligent, efficient player who will give us options and depth in the midfield," said Chivas USA Head Coach Robin Fraser. "He's proven himself in this league, and we're excited to welcome him into the team. At the same time, we're very sorry to see Alan go, and we'd like to wish him the best of luck in Toronto."
