Jermaine Jones is on the move again.

The member of the U.S. Men's National Team has been traded from the Colorado Rapids, where he spent the 2016 season, to the LA Galaxy.

The Galaxy acquired Jones's MLS rights on Tuesday night and will attempt to negotiate a new contract with the talented midfielder.

Jones took to Twitter on Tuesday night to express his gratitude toward Colorado fans and teammates for the support they gave him over the past year:

Jones only played in 13 games for the Rapids in 2016 due to injuries and a suspension, but still recorded three goals and two assists for a Colorado squad that finished in second place in the MLS Western Conference.

According to, the Galaxy will send their first MLS SuperDraft pick and some general allocation money to the Rapids for Jones.

The 2017 season will be Jones's fourth in the MLS. After playing for several years in Germany, Jones suited up for the New England Revolution in 2014 and 2015 before he was traded to Colorado prior to the 2016 season.
