CARSON, Calif. (AP) The LA Galaxy signed veteran midfielder Jermaine Jones on Wednesday, formally adding the German-born U.S. men's national team veteran to their rebuilt roster.

The Galaxy used targeted allocation money to sign the 35-year-old Jones after acquiring his rights from Colorado in a trade for their first-round draft pick.

Jones spent the past three seasons in MLS with the Rapids and the New England Revolution, getting five goals and six assists in 37 combined appearances. Before heading stateside in 2014, Jones played nearly 15 seasons in the German Bundesliga, including stints with Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke.
