United States international Sacha Kljestan, who was one of the seven players cut from the 30-man roster, has transferred from Chivas USA (MLS) to RSC Anderlecht (Belgium).

After more than a week of speculation about a prospective move, Kljestan officially signed a four-year contract with the Belgian club after not playing in Chivas' most recent game against the New York Red Bulls.

Kljestan recorded 15 goals and 33 assists in 114 games for Chivas playing in the midfield.

He has scored four goals for the United States including a hat trick against Sweden on January 24, 2009.

After failing to make the final roster for the United States, Kljestan reportedly was looking to transfer to gain more experience by playing in Europe as well as improving his overall ability against tougher competition.

Anderlecht finished first in the Belgian First Division, earning a place in the 2010-11 UEFA Champions League.
