CARSON, Calif. (AP) The LA Galaxy have signed midfielder Perry Kitchen.
The five-time MLS champions announced the deal Tuesday after trading $100,000 in general allocation money and $200,000 in targeted allocation money to D.C. United to acquire his rights.
Kitchen spent five seasons with D.C. United before moving to Heart of Midlothian in the Scottish Premiership in March 2016. He appeared in 39 games for Hearts and then moved to Denmark's Randers last July.
Kitchen also has made five appearances for the U.S. men's national team.
He is the latest addition to the Galaxy, who finished at the bottom of the MLS standings last season. He joins Venezuelan defender Rolf Feltscher, goalkeeper David Bingham and Norwegian defender Jorgen Skjelvik on the Galaxy's retooled roster.
