    ALAJUELA, Costa Rica – Alajuelense declared Monday that it has received an international transfer certificate for Jonathan McDonald.  The club initially announced on January 13 that it had reacquired the forward on a three-year deal from Sweden’s Kalmar, where he had played for two years and scored six goals in 55 games.

    McDonald is currently with Costa Rica training in advance of friendly matches at Chile on January 22 and against Korea Republic in Los Angeles three days later.  His first game with the current Costa Rican champion could be on January 29, when the Manudos visit Herediano.

    The 26-year-old originally played for Alajuelense from 2010-11, before signing a three-year deal with Kalmar. 

    McDonald is also expected to be on the team’s roster for its CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series against Arabe Unido of Panama in March.  He has three career goals in the competition.
