The San Jose Earthquakes are within striking distance of a playoff berth and made a move on Monday they will be hoping helps them reach the post-season for the first time since MLS returned to San Jose.

The Earthquakes announced the signing of Brazlian playmaker Geovanni as the team's firsts Designated Player. A midfielder with Hull City last year, Geovanni has had stints with Barcelona, Benfica and Manchester City. A key figure in helping Hull avoid relegation during the 2008/2009 season, Geovanni fell out of favor at Hull during the nightmare that was last season.

San Jose will be counting on Geovanni, 30, to give the team the creative midfield presence the club has been lacking since its debut as a re-born expansion team.

What do you think of the signing? Think Geovanni can help the Earthquakes reach the playoffs? See him struggling in MLS?
