Luis Silva has joined the Liga MX Apertura champion.
Late Tuesday, Tigres UANL revealed that the 27-year-old American midfielder is a member of its roster ahead of the 2016 Clausura season, confirming reports from December.
Silva joins Tigres after four years of MLS play, having most recently appeared in 10 games for Real Salt Lake in 2015. Before RSL, Silva played three years with D.C. United, recording his breakout season in 2014 when he scored 11 goals. He was originally drafted by Toronto FC in the 2012 MLS Draft, and spent two years with the Canadian club.
Born in Los Angeles, California, he has never been called into the U.S. Men’s National Team or featured with a U.S. youth team at any level.
Tigres will kick off its Clausura campaign against Toluca at Estadio Nemesio Díez on Sunday.
Here is Tigres’ full 2016 roster (Silva is number 23):
