Chivas USA adds three Mexican players on loan

Chivas USA has added three Mexican players from its sister club Chivas Guadalajara.

Edgar “El Chore” Mejia, Giovani Casillas and Mario de Luna have been added to the MLS club's roster on loan with Chivas USA having the option to make the transfers permanent. 

Mejia is a 24-year-old midfielder born in Guadalajara, and a product of Guadalajara’s youth academy, who made his debut in Mexico’s First Division during the Apertura 2006. Mejia was also part of the original Under-17 Mexico team that went on to captured the 2005 World Cup in Peru. An injury during practice left him unable to participate in the tournament or be part of the squad that made Mexican soccer history.

Casillas, who turned 19 in January, is a Guadalajara-born forward that made his debut in the top flight in 2011. As a member of the U-17 squad in the 2011 World Cup played in Mexico, Casillas scored the second goal in the championship match, sealing the 2-0 victory against Uruguay at Estadio Azteca.

De Luna, 25, made his professional debut with Chivas in 2008.
