Forward Alan Gordon signs with the Colorado Rapids on one-year deal

Striker Alan Gordon has joined the Colorado Rapids on a one-year-contract, the MLS club announced on Monday.

Gordon, 35, moves to Colorado after spending the past three seasons with the LA Galaxy, his second stint with the team.

He signed as a free agent after scoring three goals in 22 league appearances last year. The deal is subject to a medical.

"Alan has a lot of the qualities that we look for in a center-forward and we are certain he will help us increase our attacking output," Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni said in a statement. "He has been an exemplary pro with a wealth of experience playing in this league, and we're confident that he will bring the right mentality to our group."

The forward has 52 regular-season goals in 13 MLS seasons, in which he has won two MLS Cups with the Galaxy as well as the 2012 Supporters' Shield with the San Jose Earthquakes

Gordon has earned two caps with the U.S. national team, his most recent coming in the 2015 Gold Cup semifinal. He was also named to Jurgen Klinsmann's squad last September for the World Cup qualifiers against St. Vincent and The Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.

"Alan is a proven goal-scorer who's enjoyed a very successful and productive career in MLS," said Rapids sporting director Padraig Smith. "He adds a powerful dimension to our attacking core and to how we want to play as a team. We're thrilled that Alan chose the Rapids and we look forward to welcoming him to the club."
