David Bingham is officially on the move from one Western Conference side to another, but his new club still has to sign the coveted MLS goalkeeper.
On Monday, the LA Galaxy announced that the team has acquired the rights to the former San Jose Earthquakes shot-stopper in exchange for $200,000 in allocation money ($100,000 in TAM and $100,000 in GAM).
Despite now holding Bingham’s rights ahead of the 2018 MLS season, the Galaxy must still come to terms with the player in order for him to suit in the spring.
Last season, Bingham had a $190,000 base salary, per the MLS Players’ Union.
In the event Bingham doesn’t agree to terms with the Galaxy, another MLS club could potentially sign the experienced starter or he could move outside of MLS via transfer.
Bingham is entering his eighth season in MLS, after previously spending seven years with the Quakes.
The veteran keeper also has three caps with the USMNT, after earning his first start with the Yanks in 2016 against Canada.Follow @MattReedFutbol
