MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Juan Pablo Angel, one of MLS's top goal scorers over the last four seasons, will remain in the league after agreeing to a contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy, which had picked him up in in Stage 2 of the MLS Re-Entry Draft.

Angel became a free agent after his contract with the New York Red Bulls expired after the 2010 season.

The Colombian was the club’s all-time leading scorer with 61 goals in all competitions but let go after the Bulls signed Thierry Henry and Rafael Marques as Designated Players.

Angel joins David Beckham and Landon Donovan as one of Galaxy's three Designated Players and gives it a proven goal scorer up front to replace Edson Buddle, who left to play in the German Second Division.

"I'm anxious to start this new challenge in my life and will do my best to bring back another championship to this city," Angel said in a statement.

Angel is reunited with Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, who was in charge of the Red Bulls when Angel first arrived from England.

"He has been one of the best goal-scorers in MLS over the last four years," added Arena, "and I fully expect that he will be a productive and consistent player in a Galaxy uniform."
