While Santos Laguna is busy trying to climb out of a one-goal deficit in the Mexican Apertura final, the club has an eye on sustaining its success during the Clausura campaign as well. A piece of that puzzle involves Herculez Gomez.

Cash-strapped Estudiantes Tecos has sold Gomez to Santos Laguna, putting the U.S. international forward on one of Mexico's top teams, Fox Soccer reported today.

It will be his fourth Mexican team in the last two years, as prior to Tecos, Gomez was with Puebla and Pachuca. Gomez scored seven goals this past season, which tied him for fourth-most in the league.

Gomez, who has remained outside of the national team picture despite his goal-scoring form, will likely get a chance to compete in the United States at least once next year, as Santos Laguna is matched up with the Seattle Sounders in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. The first leg is in Seattle on March 7.
