[MLS TRANSACTIONS] The Chicago Fire has signed a new Designated Player and shipped another out. It acquired Dutch forward Sherjill MacDonald from Belgian club Beerschot and sent Federico Puppo on loan to Uruguay's Defensor Sporting Club.

MacDonald will be added to the Fire’s roster pending an international opening and will be a Designated Player for the Fire. MacDonald will begin training with the team Tuesday at the Toyota Park practice field. Per club and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Sherjill is a goalscorer who can hold the ball up, attack with pace and is very technically sound,” said Fire head coach Frank Klopas in a statement. “He has competed at a high level in Europe and will bolster our attack as we make a push toward the MLS Cup Playoffs.”

MacDonald scored 15 goals in 82 matches for Beerschot.

Klopas described Puppo's loan "as an opportunity to provide Federico with more consistent playing time Defensor is a top team in Uruguay, having won the 2012 Clausura. We look forward to keeping a close eye on his progress while he is playing in Montevideo."

The 25-year-old Puppo had one goal and one assist in 12 games for the Fire.
