[MLS TRANSACTIONS]Chivas USA will keep Mexican star Erick Torresthrough the end of the 2014 MLS season. "Cubo," who is on loan from Chivas de Guadalajara, had the tying goal in the Goats' 1-1 tie with the LA Galaxy on Sunday to give him nine of their 14 games, already tying him as the all-time MLS goal scorer among Mexican internationals.
The 21-year-old Torres' future with Chivas USA was up in the air following the sale of the club by Chivas de Guadalajara owner Jorge Vergara to MLS. The Mexican media reported that Vergara said Torres would be returning to Mexico at the end of his loan deal with Chivas USA in June.
Chivas USA will have the option to retain Torres’ services beyond 2014.
Torres joined Chivas USA via loan in July 2013 and has amassed a total of 16 tallies in 29 appearances and is tied with Cuauhtemoc Blanco as the all-time leading MLS scorer among Mexican-born players.
