LAFC sign veteran midfielder Calum Mallace

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing

LAFC have bolstered their midfield with the addition of Calum Mallace, signed on Wednesday after being selected by the expansion team in Stage 2 of the 2017 MLS Re-Entry Draft.

The 28-year-old divided the 2017 season between the Montreal Impact, where he made seven appearances in MLS regular season play, and the Seattle Sounders, where he was traded midseason. Since starting his pro career in 2012 with the Impact, he's made 80 MLS regular season appearances and six MLS Cup Playoffs appearances, scoring one goal and six assists from a holding midfield position.

“Calum is a versatile midfielder with valuable experience in the league,” said LAFC executive vice president of soccer operations and general manager John Thorrington in a statement. “He has the tools to be a successful contributor to LAFC.”

Mallace's signing brings the inaugural LAFC roster to 12 players, ahead of Friday's 2018 MLS SuperDraft (11 am ET, watch on MLSsoccer.com), where the expansion team currently holds the No. 1 overall pick.
