LA Galaxy have signed experienced midfielder Raheem Edwards to a contract through the 2024 season with a club option for 2025, the team announced on Friday.
The Toronto native has a green card in the United States, which means he will not take an international place on the list.
During six MLS seasons, Edwards has recorded 92 regular season games for Toronto FC, Chicago Fire FC, CF Montreal, Minnesota United FC and LAFC. He has five goals and 13 assists during his MLS career.
The midfielder previously played for Galaxy manager Greg Vanney in his hometown of Toronto FC in 2016 and 2017.
Edwards has made four appearances and three starts for the senior Candian Men’s national team, all in a friendly competition and most recently in 2018 against New Zealand.
Now the MLS veteran is crossing the city from LAFC to Galaxy.
“Raheem is a versatile and dynamic player who is ready for another big step in his career,” Vanney said in a press release. “We are delighted to bring a player of Raheem’s quality and experience in MLS to the Galaxy and I expect him to be a major contributor to our club.”
LA Galaxy’s 2022 season begins on February 27 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, against reigning MLS Cup champions New York City FC.
