21-year-old midfielder Adrian Vera has signed a new contract with LA Galaxy II, pending league and federation approval, the club announced today.
“Adrian arguably has been our most reliable, consistent and versatile player over the past two seasons for Galaxy II,” said LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz. “You can play Adrian in multiple positions and you know you are going to get a consistent performance day in and day out which is very important for a young professional. He knows our culture coming through the Academy and I look forward to a big year for Adrian.”
Vera of Norwalk, Calif., inks a new contract ahead of his fourth full season with the club. He signed his first professional contract with Los Dos in 2015 at the age of 18.
Vera has made 71 appearances for LA Galaxy II since his signing in 2015. In that time, he has scored seven goals and provided five assists for Los Dos.
As an LA Galaxy Academy product, Vera led the LA Galaxy U-18s with 17 goals and three assists to a 22-11-6 record during the season and finished third in the Development Academy’s West Conference. Vera was a member of the LA Galaxy Academy’s U-15/16 and U-17/18 sides from 2011 to 2015.
