San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Anthony Ampaipitakwong, an American of Thai heritage, has been transfered to Buriram United of the Thai Premier League for an undisclosed fee.
Ampaipitakwong played in 12 matches for the Earthquakes last year in his first season in the North American league but had not played for San Jose this season. His transfer was announced on Monday.
The Earthquakes also released midfielder Tressor Moreno, who set up three goals in 12 appearances for the club this season but was unhappy about limited playing time.
Juventus has agreed to buy the remaining half of midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah's registration from Serie A rivals Udinese for $12.9 million.
