​Lletget, 22, is a San Francisco native who spent the last five years in West Ham's youth system and made one appearance for the first team, going 90 minutes in a January, 2014, FA Cup match against Nottingham Forest.

Part of the U.S. youth setup from the U-17 level up, Lletget was part of the U.S. U-20 team that did not qualify for the 2011 U-20 World Cup. He was also part of a U.S. U-23 camp in the winter of 2012.

According to's report, the New England Revolution have priority to sign Lletget through the discovery process, but the Galaxy can trade $50,000 in allocation money for the right to add him under MLS's new roster rules and regulations. Despite being a U.S. youth international, Lletget is not on the newly announced fixed list of players subjected to the league's allocation order.

Lletget was out of contract with West Ham, after his extension that he signed in 2013 expired, and he will arrive in MLS on a free transfer.
