Xolos announces entire roster eligible for transfer

Paul Arriola Club Tijuana 97

Coming off of a 14th-place finish in Liga MX’s Clausura season, which included just three wins in 17 matches, Club Tijuana could be making drastic changes this summer.

The club announced on Tuesday via press release that “all the players on the current roster are eligible for transfer.”

Los Xolos currently feature six Americans in the squad, including defenders Greg Garza and Michael Orozco, as well as young attacker Paul Arriola. Additionally, Joe Corona, who is fourth all time in appearances for Tijuana, is currently out on loan Dorados de Sinaloa.

Tijuana will begin their preseason on June 6 before playing two friendlies in the United States on June 24 against Santos Laguna and five days later against Cruz Azul.


  1. Isn’t that really true everywhere. All they are really saying is hey make us an offer and we’ll think about it.

  2. Time to revisit previous comments about how excited people were that our players were playing in Tijuana, “higher standard of play,” etc.

      • Newcastle is still one of the biggest teams in England. It seems like they’re gonna hold on to most of the team and have a world class manager. It will be a step up for any of the USA soccer players.

      • Newcastle fans like to think of their club as a “big club” but big clubs win things and Newcastle have won basically nothing since the 1969 UEFA cup – 47 years ago. No league titles, no FA Cups, nothing. Being a big club is about more than have a lot of fans at your matches.

        Now they’ll be playing in a league that’s basically on par with MLS. So to say it would be a big step up for “any” USMNT player doesn’t make any sense. Obviously, it wouldn’t be a “step up” for guys like Cameron, Yedlin, Brooks, Wood, Pulisic etc.

      • @Jimmy

        I’d say that they have one of the biggest fan bases and are one of the most lucrative, but when was the last time they won anything that wasn’t the English Championship?

    • I don’t see anything of that matter to rethink, but I do feel it’s worth mentioning that the ownership and their marketing direction seems to be at odds with the coaching staffs philosophy and if our yanks are more concerned with finding some stability in their careers they should avoid clubs like Tijuana who’s intrest in them seems very dubious

    • huh? TJ had a rough season. oh well. it happens. having players coming through their system and getting Liga MX or Copa MX minutes is a good thing.
