JOHN KRETLOW - Wednesday, June 5, 2013
US National Team forward Herculez Gomez will leave Santos Laguna and join Club Tijuana for the upcoming Liga MX season.

Santos confirmed the transfer on the Twitter account on Tuesday and Tijuana confirmed later on Wednesday that the 31 year old striker had joined the club that plays on the U.S-Mexico border.

The deal will serve as a sort of homecoming for Gomez who is from Oxnard, California and began his professional career playing for the San Diego Gauchos in 2002.

Xolos will be Gomez' fifth team in the Liga MX. He joined Puebla in 2010 after playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Colorado Rapids, and the Kansas City Wizards.

At Puebla, Gomez scored ten goals in just fifteen appearances and caught the eyes of Bob Bradley and the US National Team leading up to the World Cup in South Africa. The Las Vegas native eventually was chosen in the US' final World Cup roster.

Gomez will join fellow US National Team players Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona at Tijuana.
