Chivas USA announced August 21, 2014 that the club has acquired midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker from Vancouver Whitecaps FC in exchange for midfielder Mauro Rosales. Reo-Coker, 30, joins the Red-and-White after nearly two seasons with Vancouver, where he made 39 starts in 44 appearances, recording a goal and six assists. 

A committed and hard-working midfielder, Reo-Coker emerged from the youth ranks at Wimbledon FC. At age 18, the London native earned his first captaincy role with the Dons’ senior squad, and went on to play 11 years in the English Premier League, where he also captained Aston Villa, Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United before making his move to Major League Soccer last year.

While with West Ham from 2003-07, the midfielder played a key role in the team’s promotion to the country’s top division, and helped lead the club to a spot in the FA Cup Championship against Liverpool FC. However, a last-minute goal by Steven Gerrard that equalized the final at 3-3 prevented the East London side from lifting the trophy, as they eventually fell in the penalty round.

At the international level, Reo-Coker has represented England from the Under-20 ranks all the way up to the senior national team. Having made 23 appearances for England’s U-21 squad, the midfielder’s leadership skills were instrumental in England’s run to the Semifinals of the 2007 UEFA U-21 Championship. The Londoner was named as a standby for the 2006 World Cup but was replaced after suffering an injury.
