LAFC secure permanent transfer for D Jesus David Murillo

Los Angeles FC completed the permanent transfer of Colombian defender Jesus David Murillo on Friday.

Murillo, 26, appeared in LAFC’s final six matches in 2020 while on loan from Deportivo Independiente Medellin.

He tallied his lone assist of the season in a postseason-clinching 2-1 win against the Houston Dynamo on Oct. 28.

“Re-signing Jesus was of utmost priority for us and we are excited to know he will be with us from the start of the season,” LAFC co-president and general manager John Thorrington said in a release. “It was evident from the moment Jesus joined us that he fit in very well with our group and our system. He is a strong and reliable defender with a commanding presence on both ends of the field.”

Before joining LAFC, Murillo played for Independente Medellin (2018-20), Patriotas Bocaya (2014-17) and Deportivo Pasto (2013-14).
