After weeks of speculation, Herculez Gomez will soon be on the move to a Liga MX side that already has some U.S. Men’s National Team players on the roster.

Gomez will join Mexican side Club Tijuana this summer, Santos Laguna confirmed on Tuesday night.

Gomez will join a Xolos setup that includes American players Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona, Greg Garza, Alejandro Guido and Bruno Piceno. The club is coming off of a landmark year that included a 2012 Apertura title and a thrilling run to the quarterfinals of Copa Libertadores.

Gomez will be joining Mexican First Division club since leaving MLS after the 2010 season. Several MLS teams were reportedly interested in bringing the 31-year-old Las Vegas native back to the States, where he had stints with Los Angeles, Colorado and Kansas City.


What do you think of Gomez joining Club Tijuana? Excited at the possibility of him playing with other Americans in Liga MX? Disappointed that he won’t be moving back to MLS? Think this is a good move for him?
