    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – Municipal announced Sunday the signing of El Salvador international Kevin Santamaria to a one-year contract

    The midfielder, 23, is the 2014 Clausura runner-up’s third off-season addition, following the arrivals of midfielder Osmar Lopez and defender Jaime Vides.

    Santamaria spent the last six months on loan at fellow Guatemalan side Suchitepequez from Santa Tecla of El Salvador, scoring seven goals in the Venados’ (Deer’s) run to the quarterfinals, where they fell to Municipal, 5-1 on aggregate.

    He appeared in three of El Salvador’s four matches during the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup as the Cuscatlecos reached the quarterfinals before being eliminated by the eventual champion United States.

    The last Salvadoran to play for Municipal was attacking midfielder Eliseo Quintanilla, who was a member on 2012 Apertura-winning squad.

    Municipal qualified for the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League and will discover its opponents at Wednesday’s draw in Doral, Florida.
