San Diego FC have signed Hirving Lozano as the first Designated Player in the club's history.

The Mexico international will make the move on January 1 ahead of San Diego's first season in the MLS, remaining with his current club, PSV, for the rest of 2024.

Lozano is just the fourth player to join the club and has signed a four-year contract, with the option to extend for a further two years.

"It's an honor to join San Diego FC as the club's first designated player," said Lozano.

"It's exciting to be part of history as we build a club that will compete for championships in MLS. In every country I have played, I always strive to leave a mark, and making an impact in San Diego and MLS is very important to me."
