MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Just days after its elimination from the MLS playoffs -- the first time in five years it has not played for the Western Conference title -- the LA Galaxy began the process of building for 2014 with the signing of 26-year-old midfielder Baggio Husidic from the Galaxy's sister club, Hammarby of Sweden.

The Bosnia-born Hudisic attended UIC and played three seasons for the Chicago Fire being joining Hammarby as a free agent. His MLS rights were held by the Colorado Rapids, who picked them up in the 2011 re-entry phase but traded them to the Galaxy over the summer in the deal that also brought veteran Pablo Mastroeni to the Galaxy.

At Hammarby, Hudisic played under former Galaxy defender Gregg Berhalter, who was recently named the Columbus Crew coach. He played 16 games in 2013 after making 25 the year before, both in the Superettan, the second level of Swedish soccer.

In a season-ending meeting with reporters on Monday, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena praised Hudisic's versatility.

“He's an experienced player who can play in different positions in the midfield," he said, "so I think he'll offer a value to our team, for sure

Hudisic has other ties to the Galaxy organization. He was the best man at the wedding of his former UIC teammate, Ian Sarachan, son of Galaxy assistant, Dave Sarachan.
