The Galaxy announced Tuesday that it has signed midfielders Mike Magee and Colin Clark and goalkeeper Brian Perk for the 2013 season.
The signing of Magee, who played a key role in the team's successive MLS Cup victories, was a big one given the team's uncertain status in the midfield. With David Beckham retiring from MLS play and the return of captain Landon Donovan and Juninho uncertain, the Galaxy could enter preseason camp later this month without three midfield starters from last season.
In four seasons with the Galaxy, Magee has 13 goals and 11 assists in 95 regular-season games, but he's been almost unstoppable in the postseason, scoring eight times in 17 games. Magee actually agreed to terms on a new deal last month but the team chose not to announce it until Tuesday.
Magee, 28, who had a base salary of $124,135 last season, was due a significant raise although terms of the deal were not released.
