Greg Garza - USA - Close up

After just five months, Greg Garza is returning to Club Tijuana.

The 24-year-old was loaned out to Atlas before the Apertura season after spending four years with Xolos. Atlas announced on Thursday that his loan spelled has ended and that he is returning to Tijuana.

The US national team defender made just three appearances with the Guadalajara-based side before undergoing hip surgery in September. The Texas-native thanked Atlas and their supporters in a tweet on Thursday.
