[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Teenager Andy Najar, the 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year, has joined Anderlecht on loan from D.C. United for the month of January. The Honduran international, who trained with the Belgian champions in December, rejoined them at their winter training camp in Belek, Turkey.

Coach John van den Brom took 27 players to Turkey, where they will train until Saturday. Missing are Argentine star Lucas Biglia, who is involved in a dispute with the club, and Dieumerci Mbokani, who is preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Anderlecht, the current Jupiler League leader, will play Dutch club Heracles on Saturday in a friendly. It resumes league play on Jan. 20 against Zulte Waregem.

“This is another very good opportunity for Andy to gain valuable experience with a top European club,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper. “We look forward to his return for the second half of our preseason.”

Najar, 19, has tallied 10 goals and 11 assists in the 82 MLS matches (72 starts) for D.C. United.

His loan means he'll be unavailable for the Copa Centroamericana in which Honduras is the defending champion.

Najar has made three appearances with the senior Catrachos and represented Honduras at the 2012 London Olympics.
