    TIJUANA, Mexico – Club Tijuana announced Saturday that on-loan striker Jaime Ayovi, an Ecuador international, has joined the squad after spending six months with Liga de Quito.

    The 25-year-old was acquired by Xolos in the summer and was sent to the Ecuadorian side, scoring eight goals in 15 games.

    Ayovi has previous experience in Mexican football after stints with Toluca (2011), with which he appeared in the 2010-11 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL), and Pachuca (2011-2012).

    In Ecuador’s successful World Cup Qualifying campaign for Brazil 2014, he netted once in 10 appearances.

    Tijuana, which finished 10th in the Liga MX 2013 Apertura standings and recently named Venezuelan Cesar Farias as its new head coach, will meet the LA Galaxy in the quarterfinals of the 2013-14 CCL next year.
