Three American players are on the move south of the border.
Herculez Gomez, Edgar Castillo and Jonathan Bornstein have completed moves to stay in Mexico, just with different clubs.
Gomez, 32, has completed a loan move from Club Tijuana to Tigres UANL for the 2014 season. He only played in 21 matches for Tijuana and this makes Tigres the sixth club Gomez has played for in Mexico.
As for Castillo, the 27-year-old will be playing for Atlas, after Club Tijuana completed a permanent transfer. The defender appeared in 23 matches the past season for Tijuana. Castillo played in many of the US international games prior to the World Cup, but was left off the 30-man provisional squad by Jurgen Klinsmann. He spent the past two and a half years playing for Tijuana.
Finally, 29-year-old defender Jonathan Bornstein has been loaned out from Tigres to Queretaro for the upcoming season. The former 2006 MLS Rookie of the year with Chivas USA spent last season on loan with Atlante, who were relegated. The loan move to Queretaro gives Bornstein a chance to continue playing in LIGA MX.
