CARSON, Calif. -- It's official.
The LA Galaxy have acquired Robbie Rogers from the Chicago Fire in exchange for Mike Magee. Rogers will be eligible to participate upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and could be available for Sunday's match against Seattle Sounders FC.
Galaxy captain Robbie Keane offered his thoughts on the deal.
"I think that everybody is sad to see Mikey go because he’s a top player and a great person to have around. He’s good for the locker room, so he’s certainly going to be missed by everybody, but you have to respect somebody’s decision that for family reasons, he wants to go back home. We wish him well and hope that he can have as much success there as he had with the Galaxy. We got another player Robbie, who has trained with us the last couple of weeks and has great qualities so he’s going to be a great addition to the squad."
