David Beckham recently left the Los Angeles Galaxy, but the team is bringing in another import from Great Britain's Premier League.
Goalie Carlo Cudicini is moving to the Galaxy from Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Cudicini is arriving on a free transfer. English media outlets reported only that Cudicini's contract had been sold to the Galaxy.
"We are delighted to be able to add Carlo Cudicini to our roster," Galaxy head coach and general manager Bruce Arena wrote in a statement Monday. "Carlo is an experienced and accomplished goalkeeper who we believe will be a great addition to our team and our defensive unit."
Cudicini, a 39-year-old Italian, made 37 appearances for Spurs over his three years with the London club. This season, he moved down to the depth chart when French international Hugo Lloris joined Tottenham.
Lloris, 26, has been splitting time with veteran American goaltender Brad Friedel. Though Friedel is 41, the oldest player in the Barclays Premier League, he recently signed a one-year extension with Spurs.
Cudicini previously spent a decade with Chelsea, usually serving as a backup to Petr Cech.
