Midnight on late Wednesday night/Thursday morning saw the end of the 2013 Liga MX draft, with no less than 104 players making full transfers or loans to other clubs in the league.
The busy last few days, the end of the domestic transfer period, saw many high-profile transfers, none higher than Mexico National Team forward Aldo de Nigris moving from Monterrey to Chivas Guadalajara, potentially jump-starting Jorge Vergara’s club’s stuttering attack.
Monterrey also lost another of their stars as Ecuadorian midfielder Walter Ayovi moved to Pachuca, who made plenty of moves in the draft, bringing in no less than nine players while letting 12 leave on a permanent deal or loan move.
Club Tijuana brought in U.S. international Herculez Gomez but also lost the likes of Duvier Riascos to Pachuca and Leandro Augusto on loan to Puebla. Another U.S. international, Michael Orozco, made his loan move to Puebla permanent from Chiapas.
Here’s a full list of all the transfers during the 2013 Apertura Liga MX draft.
