DC United has announced the addition of midfielder Cristian Castillo, a member of the Salvadoran national team who will join United on loan from Leon, a second-division Mexican club. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and Castillo will join the team upon receipt of his international transfer certificate and work visa.

The 25-year old Castillo has made 32 appearances with El Salvador’s national team. He scored against the United States in each of the teams’ two World Cup qualifiers in the final round.

I like this addition by DC. For one it adds some depth that was lacking in the midfield and second of all it adds someone with good international experience. I’ve seen Castillo a couple times in World Cup qualifiers and thought he was a guy that would fit in well with a MLS club.

Below is the goal that he scored on the US a while back in qualifying.

    Love this guys skill set. Should be a good addition to the league. It will be interesting tho, the first time he tries a few of those stepovers in front of Kovalenko. He might get his ankles broken.
