Castillo seals full transfer to Tijuana

Edgar Castillo made a solid impression during his clausura campaign while on loan with Club Tijuana, so much so that he won't be leaving the club anytime soon.

Tijuana completed a full transfer for Castillo, purchasing his rights from Club America on Thursday. Castillo enjoyed a standout clausura season while on loan for Xolos, becoming a fixture in the lineup and earning his way back into the national team picture. Tabbed by Jurgen Klinsmann for the current five-game stretch, Castillo appeared as a substitute against Scotland and Brazil before being pressed into starting duty at left back against Canada after Fabian Johnson was hurt during pregame warm-ups.

The full transfer signifies stability for Castillo, something that he has been lacking during his club career. After moving to America from Santos Laguna, Castillo has spent the better part of the last three years on loan, playing for Tigres UANL, San Luis and Puebla before his loan to Tijuana, where he will remain teammates with Americans Joe Corona and Greg Garza.

What do you think of the move? Do you think Castillo is a viable left back option for the national team?
