Perry Kitchen's two-year European adventure is over.
The 25-year-old midfielder joined the LA Galaxy on Tuesday after stints at Hearts in the Scottish Premiership and Randers in the Danish Superliga. He represented D.C. United until 2015, where he won a club player of the year award and was an MLS Rookie of the Year finalist.
The Californian franchise sent $100,000 in General Allocation Money and $200,000 in Targeted Allocation Money to D.C. for Kitchen's MLS rights.
"Perry has proven himself to be a top midfielder in Major League Soccer during his time with D.C. United," LA Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid said in a statement. "He has continued to progress during his time in Europe and we are confident he can bolster our midfield. At only 25 years old, Perry is already an MLS veteran and will be a great addition to the LA Galaxy on and off the field."
Kitchen has won five international caps for the United States, and started 155 of his 158 appearances for D.C. United before he tested his skills across the pond. He was appointed captain at Hearts, and made nine appearances in Denmark.
The LA Galaxy begin their 2018 MLS campaign with an appetizing visit from New York City FC on Feb. 10.
