Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong acquired by LA Galaxy

CARSON, Calif. (AP) The LA Galaxy acquired Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong on Wednesday, completing their third high-profile international move of the winter with the signing of the two-time World Cup veteran on a free transfer.

De Jong spent the past four seasons with AC Milan, serving as captain and making 79 appearances since 2012. He terminated his contract with the club Monday by mutual consent.

The 31-year-old De Jong is a standout defensive midfielder adding even more toughness to the Galaxy, who entered training camp last month with a renewed focus on their own end. The club hopes de Jong will be a strong midfield partner with Steven Gerrard, providing defensive cover for the English star's adventurous offensive play. (MORE)
