A report out of Panama Saturday claims the LA Galaxy have signed midfielder Carlos Harvey to a permanent deal.

The deal between the Galaxy and Panamanian outfit Tauro FC is done, according to Guillermo Pineda of El Diario.

Harvey, 21, spent the last two seasons in the Galaxy organization on loan from Tauro. In 2019, he played for LA Galaxy II in the USL Championship and was considered a rising star in that circuit. He began the 2020 season with Los Dos, but was called up to the first team after the coronavirus shutdown, serving mostly as cover off the bench. He had one start, in Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s final game in charge, and let’s just say that one was a baptism by fire.

Still, the holding midfielder remains quite young and with the Galaxy clearing out some of their veteran midfielders, he could get more playing time in 2021.

The Galaxy have yet to confirm this move, but given the situation and the source, it appears to be credible and likely to be confirmed in the coming days and weeks. I’m not sure if Harvey is ready to be a starter this coming season, but he’ll likely get a long look from new head coach Greg Vanney, and we’ll see how the chips fall when the games arrive.
