Keith Costigan is reporting that Chivas USA and US international midfielder Sacha Kljestan has agreed a deal with Belgian side Anderlecht. The 24 year old midfielder has 24 caps to date for the US senior national team, scoring 4 goals. He will likely join the team when the transfer window reopens in mid July.
Kljestan has been a target of several European clubs for the past couple seasons, including a brief trial with Celtic in January of 2009. Anderlecht won last seasons Belgian First Division, qualifying for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Kljestan was included in the 30-man preliminary World Cup squad, but failed to make the final 23-man squad.
