The Galaxy organization have signed another defender for the future: John Requejo has inked a deal with Los Dos.

The 21-year old comes to LA after three uneventful seasons with Club Tijuana in which the U.S. youth international was unable to break through to the first team, paving the way for a fresh start with LA Galaxy II.

“John is an exciting young prospect that already has a lot of valuable international experience that will be valuable at this level,” said LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz. “He’s an ambitious, modern day left back in the attack with attributes that suit our style well. He’s young and ambitious and I look forward to John getting professional game experience with Los Dos.”

Requejo, of Carpinteria, Calif., was one of the most active USYNT members from 2011-13, making 40 appearances for the U-17s during that span. In one of his brightest moments in that time, he helped the U-17s to the 2013 CONCACAF U-17 Championship. In 2015, he was named to the U-20 World Cup roster and at the CONCACAF U-20 Championship in that same year, Requejo and Cameron Carter-Vickers were the only two players on that team to play every minute of the team’s six matches.
