Chivas USA acquires Harmse from Toronto FC

Publish date:

It's been a busy week for Mo Johnston and the rest of TorontoFC 's front office as on Wednesday they completed yet another trade, this time with Chivas USA.

The Reds traded 24-year-old midfielder Kevin Harmse to the Los Angeles club in exchange for an undisclosed amount of allocation money.

"Kevin is a strong, technical player who can play in both midfield and defense," said Chivas USA head coach Preki in a press release. "We're excited to welcome him to the club and eager for him to contribute to our team."

This is the third move Toronto has made in just over a week. It follows the release of both Rohan Ricketts and Johann Smith and the trading for and signing of Ali Gerba.

Harmse played two-and-a-half seasons in MLS, splitting time with the Los Angeles Galaxy (2007) and Toronto FC (2008-09). Prior to joining MLS, Harmse played for the Vancouver Whitecaps of the USL First Division, as well as Tromso Idrettslag in Norway. He's also been capped by the Canadian national team on nine different occasions.
