Colorado Rapids reach deals to add Edgar Castillo, Jack Price
The Colorado Rapids have acquired U.S. international defender Edgar Castillo on loan and completed a move for midfielder Jack Price.
The MLS club had yet to confirm the players’ signings but still introduced them at a fan event on Monday.
Castillo, 31, joins Colorado on a year-long loan from Monterrey after spending his entire club career in Liga MX.
Castillo was born in New Mexico but came up through the Mexican national team youth system and even played in three friendlies for El Tri before switching to the U.S. in 2009.
He most recently played for the U.S. in a pair of World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala in March 2016.
Price, 25, arrives from English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he had spent his entire career outside of a few short-term loans, after joining the club’s academy at seven years old.
He signed his first pro contract with Wolves in 2011 and has made 115 appearances for the club, with two goals.
At Wolves he was a teammate of Kevin Doyle, who retired last year after two seasons with Colorado.
“I’ve been at Wolves for my entire footballing life so it’s played a huge part in my career,” he told the club’s website. “I’ve played with some fantastic players and worked with some brilliant staff.
“Of course, a part of me is sad to leave the club after so many years, but the time is right for a new challenge and I’m really looking forward to my next step.
“I would like to thank everybody who has helped me during my time at Wolves and the fans for their support throughout my time here. It’s a wonderful club and I wish it every success going forward.”
