[MLS] The ranks of Designated Players in MLS has increased again. Robb Heinemann, president of Kansas City Wizards ownership group OnGoal LLC, tweeted Thursday night that a long courtship with Mexican international Omar Bravo had produced a deal, and the official announcement came out Friday morning.

Bravo, 30, will stay with Guadalajara on loan to play next Wednesday in the Copa Libertadores final second leg and the balance of the the current Apertura season. He will join the Wizards in January.

Bravo is second in all-time goals scored (106) for Guadalajara and has scored 16 goals in 65 appearances for Mexico.

He came through the Guadalajara development system to start his pro career in 2001, played a season in Spain with Deportivo La Coruna, and after a brief loan spell at UANL Tigres returned to Guadalajara last year.

His signing brings the number of DPs currently in MLS to 13.

Kansas City had signed Argentine international Claudio Lopez as a DP in 2008 before removing the DP tag last year and then trading him to Colorado.
