Orlando City SC has agreed to transfer midfielder Yoshimar Yotún to Liga MX’s Cruz Azul for an undisclosed amount.
“Yoshi has been an important player for this Club; however, he expressed interest in Cruz Azul at the conclusion of the season. We worked closely with him and his agent to keep him in Orlando, including offering new contract options,” said Orlando City EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi. “Ultimately, the player had his mind set on a move to Mexico, and we reached the best possible outcome for both him and the Club. We thank Yoshi for his time with Orlando City and wish him the best of luck in the future.”
Yotún, 28, appeared in 32 matches for City over the course of two seasons. The Peruvian international recorded five goals and 14 assists in his MLS career and was a 2018 MLS All-Star Game selection.
