Chivas USA dumps four more players
[MLS TRANSACTIONS] The dismantling of Chivas USA continued as it announced that midfielder Giovani Casillas' loan spell was
over and he had returned to Guadalajara, and it parted ways with defender Joaquin Velazquez and declined options for midfielders Miller Bolanos and Laurent Courtois, whose departure comes less than 24 hours after he scored for Chivas USA in its 1-1 tie with New England for
just its second point gained in the last three months.
Chivas USA has now gotten rid of 20 players since the end of the 2012 season.
There was no word about the status of
American Eric Avila, who has been training with Guadalajara. The former U.S. U-20 and U-17 announced his intention to renounce his U.S. national team ambitions
in order to play for Chivas, which has a policy of only using players who are Mexican nationals.
Reports out of Mexico suggested that 20-year-old Erick Torres, one of
Chivas' top prospects, would be joining Chivas USA on loan.
A report on the Scottish club Rangers' web site said that Carlos Bocanegra, who left the Glasgow by mututal
agreement, was in talks with Chivas USA though the Goats would have to strike a deal with Toronto FC, which is first in the allocation order, for his rights.
