Galaxy's Yallop isn't done wheeling and dealing

L.A. Galaxy coach Frank Yallop isn't done revamping his roster. Los Angeles acquired veteran midfielder Chris Klein from Real Salt Lake in exchange for rookie forward Robbie Findley and U-20 midfielder/defender Nathan Sturgis and signed 33-year-old Honduran international Carlos Pavon, and Yallop is discussing options for Santino Quaranta with several clubs.

Teams are rushing to complete trades and other transactions before the contract guarantee date of July 1. Yallop has been noncommittal on Quaranta's play, but did say after the 3-1 loss to Dallas June 9, "It's finally catching up to us that we weren't good enough. What I find out at this point, and I told the guys, is who actually wants to be at this club."

Pavon, who had five goals at the 2007 Gold Cup for Honduras, spent much of his career in Mexico, where he played for Morelia, Toluca, San Luis Potosi, Correcaminos, Necaxa, Cruz Azul and Celaya. He was one of a number of Hondurans to move to Italy in the last decade. He has played in Italy for both Udinese and Napoli from 2001-2003. Pavon had played briefly in Spain for Real Valladolid early in his career.
