“Brian is moving to Almería to advance the promotion to the top Spanish league,” said LAFC Co-President and GM John Thorrington in a club statement. “Since arriving in 2019, Brian has been a central point of our attack and a huge reason for our success. This move gives him a great opportunity to play important games at the highest level in European football. “
The move opens a designated player spot for LAFC. Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi occupy the other two.
Almeria are currently in second place in the Spanish second division, making them a favorite for promotion to La Liga.
