United States international midfielder Joe Corona is set to sign for LA Galaxy on a permanent deal from Club Tijuana, sources have told ESPN FC.

The signing was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.

The 28-year-old won the Liga MX title with Club America on loan last season, but didn’t feature much this season on return to Club Tijuana under Oscar Pareja — partly due to injuries — and has recently expressed an interest in playing in MLS.

Joe Corona is working his way back into the mix at Club Tijuana, which should only help his national team prospects.
Joe Corona had spent several seasons in Liga MX at Tijuana and Club America.

Galaxy exercised their option to buy out the contract of Mexico international midfielder Giovani dos Santos last Friday, freeing up room on the roster for Corona. “One or two” more signings can be expected from the Galaxy in this current transfer window, according to one source.

The Galaxy will use TAM money to make the signing, a source confirmed to ESPN FC’s Jeff Carlisle.

Versatile central midfielder Corona could be available to make his Galaxy debut as early as this Saturday away at FC Dallas, with the announcement of the transfer expected either later Wednesday or Thursday.

Bilingual Los Angeles native Corona won two Liga MX and two Ascenso MX titles in his time playing in Mexico and is thought to be delighted at moving to a city in which he has family.

Corona hasn’t played for the U.S. national team since June 2018, but was part of both the 2013 and 2017 Gold Cup winning squads for the Stars and Stripes.
