Chris Leitch is now a member of the San Jose Earthquakes.

New York has parted ways with veteran defender Chris Leitch by trading him to San Jose for an international player spot and an undisclosed allocation.

Mark this down as move one on roster compliance day.

San Jose gets another veteran defender and looks pretty good in that department. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Leitch, I do like this move for the Quakes as it will add some solid depth in the back and give another veteran who knows what it takes to get to a MLS Cup. That kind of stuff can go a long way with a young club.

New York is linked right now with a slew of defenders from South American and eleswhere. Two being Spanish defender/midfielder Albert Celades or El Salvadoran defender Alfredo Pacheco.

More moves coming…
