Chivas USA deals Eskandarian to Galaxy

By Shane Evans, Special to,

Chivas USA announced Wednesday that it has traded forward Alecko Eskandarian to the Los Angeles Galaxy for allocation money and a conditional pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.

"This move allows us greater flexibility in terms of our roster and salary budget," said Chivas USA head coach Preki in a statement. "We would like to thank Alecko for his contributions to our club. We wish him the best."

The 26-year-old Eskandarian is becoming something of an MLS journeyman as the Galaxy will be his fifth club in six years. The move follows three seasons as a D.C. United player, one split between Toronto FC and Real Salt Lake, and a season-and-a-half with Chivas.

A native of Montvale, N.J., Eskandarian has scored 28 goals in his MLS career and has also been capped by the U.S. national team on one occasion.
