Wilhelmsson, who signed with the club on September 4, secured his visa and the club received his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) this week, formally completing the move, and allowing him to be added to the roster on Thursday afternoon.

The club did not need to make any additional roster moves in order to add the 32-year-old to the roster.

Wilhelmsson first arrived in Southern California on August 30 and has been training with the club for the past two weeks. Capable of playing on either flank, he has appeared in each of LA's last two Reserve League games, playing just under in hour in each contest.
