La Galaxy have confirmed the signing of former Heerenveen and Willem II left-back Pele van Anholt.

The Dutchman was a free agent after leaving Willem II at the end of the season but will now continue his career in the MLS with LA Galaxy confirming his arrival on their website.

LA Galaxy General Manager Pete Vagenas said on Van Aanholt, “Pele is a talented and versatile player who will immediately add quality and experience to our defense. Our staff did an excellent job at identifying this player and executing the signing to improve our roster and we look forward to him joining our squad.”

The 26-year-old started his career with Heerenveen, making more than 125 appearances for the club before joining Willem II last summer. Last season he appeared 26 times in the Eredivisie.
