Chivas USA continues to make deals. Today, they traded midfielder Sal Zizzo to the Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money.

The 23-year old played in 10 games last season with Chivas while contributing one assist. He was acquired by Chivas USA in a weighted lottery after signing with MLS in July 2010.

The deal doesn’t seem to be a huge one but one that gives Portland another quality young midfielder. The allocation they sent probably wasn’t a a whole lot, at least not nearly as much as Chivas sent Dallas yesterday for Health Pearce.
