LA Galaxy sign Sao Paulo pair Juninho, Leonardo

LA Galaxy have re-signed Sao Paulo midfielder Juninho on-loan.

Additionally, the Galaxy have completed the signing of former São Paulo defender Leonardo, who joins the club permanently on a free transfer.

Juninho and Leonardo each played for the Galaxy during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, helping the club repeat as Supporters' Shield winners and win their third MLS Cup last season. Per club and league policy, terms of the contracts, were not disclosed.

"Juninho is not going to be utilized at São Paulo [this season] per the coach's decision and the club is accepting the loan deal for Juninho's return to Los Angeles to play for the Galaxy," club spokesman Felipe Espindola told MLSsoccer.com on Tuesday.
