The Chicago Fire acquired defender Alonso Aceves on loan from Liga MX side C.F. Pachuca on Wednesday.
The deal runs through the end of this season and includes an option to purchase. Terms were not disclosed.
Aceves, 21, will occupy a U-22 initiative slot and an international roster position with the Fire.
Aceves helped Pachuca to the 2021-22 Liga MX final. He has been on loan with the Spanish LaLiga2 side Real Oviedo in 2022-23.
"Alonso was an important player for Pachuca during their run to the LIGA MX final in 2022 and has already gained experience playing overseas with his recent move to Spain," Fire sporting director Georg Heitz said. "We expect him to compete for first-team minutes and add more depth and quality to our backline."
