The latest player to leave new-look Chivas USA appears to be defender James Riley.

Riley tweeted his thanks to Chivas USA fans and the previous regime in charge of the club on Thursday afternoon before stating that he was hopping on a plane to join D.C. United, who are currently in Orlando, Fla. for the Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic.

Neither of the teams have yet to confirm the trade and it is unknown what the Goats are receiving in return, but Riley’s apparent departure is just the latest example of Chivas USA and new head coach Jose Luis ‘El Chelis’ Sanchez ridding themselves of non-latino players.

Riley started in all 32 of Chivas USA’s games last season, notching two assists in his only year with the club.

What do you think of Chivas USA’s apparent trade of Riley? Do you see him starting at D.C. United? What do you think United gave in return?
