"Jhon is one of the top center backs in MLS. He is athletic, strong, very good in the air, and excellent in one-versus-one situations," Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera said in a statement. "His experience and winning mentality will be a huge addition to our club."
"We felt this was a good opportunity to gain additional allocation money that will allow for flexibility moving forward," said Fire head coach and director of soccer Frank Yallop in a statement. "I'd like to thank Jhon for his time here in Chicago this season and wish him well with Chivas USA."
