    CARSON, California -- Chivas USA announced Thursday that it acquired Honduras international Marvin Chavez from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for striker Luke Moore, who was subsequently traded to Toronto FC.

    Chavez is expected to join his new club ahead of Saturday’s Major League Soccer (MLS) match against those same Rapids.

    “Chavez is one of the best wide midfielders in the League and is very versatile at creating scoring opportunities,” said Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera.

    Following the Week 11 fixture against FC Dallas, the 30-year-old midfielder will head to Honduras’ training camp in South Florida ahead of preparation friendlies for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

    Chavez entered MLS in 2009 with FC Dallas and has scored 12 goals in 98 career games.  He played two seasons with the San Jose Earthquakes beginning in 2012, helping them to a place in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League, where he tallied against the Montreal Impact in a 3-0 win on September 17, 2013.

    The former Marathon standout was acquired by Colorado via trade during the off-season and appeared in two matches.

    With Honduras, Chavez has acquired 37 caps and netted four goals, competing in nine all-time World Cup Qualifying matches over two cycles.  He also played in the 2009 and 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cups.
