MLS Trade Central: Monday's deals

Orlando City signed 19-year-old Honduran international striker Bryan Rochez as its second Designated Player after Brazilian great Kaka.

Rochez has scored 30 goals in 62 games for Real Espana (highlights) since making his pro debut in October 2012. He made his debut for Honduras at the Copa Centroamericana in September. Los Catrachos finished fifth and must face French Guiana in a two-game playoff in March for the final berth in the 2015 Gold Cup.

Orlando City head coach Adrian Heath said Rochez has the ability to contribute to the expansion Lions straight away."

The Orlando Sentinel reported on Sunday that Orlando City is working on a deal to sign wayward U.S. international winger Brek Shea, who has been a flop at Stoke City. His loan deal with Birmingham City ended Saturday.
