Breaking: Abel Xavier to Galaxy

As speculated last night on The MLS Zone, Abel Xavier has joined the Los Angeles Galaxy on a free transfer from Middlesbrough.
The signing gives the Galaxy some much-needed help in the center of defense. Xavier will likely pair with Jamaican internationl Tyrone Marshall there once he joins the team. He is eligible to play once the Secondary MLS Transfer Window opens on June 15. "I'd like to thank Alexi Lalas, Frank Yallop and MLS for this opportunity," said Xavier. "I'm coming to win. With the great team and wonderful fans at the L.A. Galaxy, everything is possible. I bring heart, hunger, desire and passion. This is me today, tomorrow, and always."

"This is a terrific signing for us and he will bring so much experience, leadership and ability to the team," said L.A. Galaxy head coach Frank Yallop. "People of his quality are not often available for us to sign, so we are really happy that he is going to join us."
