Castillo, Gomez and Bornstein on move in Mexico
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Mexican clubs have -- already -- started training for the 2014 Torneo Apertura that begins in July, so that means rosters are being finalized.
On the move are Edgar Castillo and Herculez Gomez, the two senior Americans at Tijuana, and Jonathan Bornstein of relegated Atlante.
After two and half seasons at Tijuana, Castillo is moving to Atlas. It's the seventh Mexican club for the 27-year-old Castillo, who
began his career at Santos before moving to Club America, Tigres, San Luis Puebla and then to Xolos. He played 32 games for Tijuana, the most of any American in Mexico last season.
who has joined Tigres on loan from Tijuana, on the other hand, endured a rough season with Xolos, going scoreless in 20 Liga MX matches. He had scored 35 goals in his first three-and-a half-seasons in
Mexico with four other clubs.
Bornstein, 29, moves to Queretaro on loan from Tigres after spending the 2014
Torneo Clausura, also on loan, at Atlante, where he made three league appearances. He only had nine appearances in three full years at Tigres after moving from MLS's Chivas USA in 2010.
Two Southern California youth stars have moved to Tijuana: John Requejo (Real So Cal) and Anthony Rodriguez (Chivas USA
academy), whose brother Stevie has been at Xolos since 2012. Stevie Rodriguez was one of several young Americans to play on loan from Xolos for second division Dorados in the 2014
