Ecuadorian midfielder Minda signs with Chivas

Chivas USA signed Ecuadorian midfielder Oswaldo Minda on Wednesday night.

Minda, 28, has played 15 times for Ecuador, with 13 of those appearances since 2010, including seven starts. On the club level, he played at Deportivo Quito in Ecuador from 2008-11, scoring 11 goals in 85 matches.

"Our commitment and goal to bring in the best players for our club continues," said Chivas GM Jose Domene. "When we scouted in South America, Oswaldo Minda was one of the players we wanted.

"His experience in both local and international competitions will be of great value. We welcome him to the Red and White, and we are sure he will adapt to coach [Robin] Fraser's system very quickly."

Minda started his career with Ecuador's Aucas in 2000, and spent time on loan at Deportivo Cuenca and Emelec before joining Deportivo Quito.

He will be added to the roster pending receipt of his ITC and P-1 Visa.
