The LA Galaxy signed midfielder Rayan Raveloson to a three-year contract Thursday with a club option for a fourth season.

The 24-year-old Madagascar native played in 35 games this season for Ligue 2 champion ES Troyes AC in France, helping the club earn promotion to Ligue 1.

“Rayan is a talented, young and versatile midfielder who was a key player in leading his team to a title in France this season,” Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese said in a club statement. “We think he brings a valuable experience and skillset to our midfield and will be a positive addition to our team. We look forward to him joining the club and his contributions to the LA Galaxy.”

Raveloson tallied nine goals and 10 assists across 151 appearances with Troyes (2018-21) and Tours FC (2014-18).

Internationally, the defensive midfielder has earned 11 caps with the Madagascar national team.
