SACHA KLJESTAN TO JOIN ANDERLECHT

United States and Chivas USA Midfielder Sacha Kljestan has completed a move to Belgian side Anderlecht.

The Chivas USA captain, who is the club’s all-time leader in assists and matches played, completed the transfer to the Belgian First Division champion on Thursday.

Kljestan, who had a brief loan spell with Celtic in 2009, will join an Anderlecht team that won the 2009-10 Belgian Jupiler League and qualifies for the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

“I’m very excited and proud to be joining a club like Anderlecht,” Kljestan said, “and I wouldn’t be there to sign with them today if I hadn’t been for Chivas USA.

“I’m ready to take this exciting step in my career.”

Kljestan will join his new team when the summer transfer window opens in July.
