BUCHAREST, Romania – Romania’s Dinamo Bucharest announced Monday the acquisition of goalkeeper Jaime Penedo from Costa Rica’s Saprissa, signing the Panama international to a two-year contract. 

The 34-year-old joined Saprissa in December 2015. 

Penedo, who appeared in all three of Panama’s games at the recently-completed Copa America Centenario, had previously played for the LA Galaxy (August 5, 2013 – July 29, 2015) and was part of the 2014 MLS championship squad. He had spent the previous six years with Municipal, helping it capture four Guatemalan league titles. 

With the Canaleros, Penedo won the 2009 Central American Cup and finished as runner-up in a pair of Gold Cups (2005, 2013), taking home Golden Glove honors on both occasions. 

A two-time Panamanian league champion with Arabe Unido, he has also competed for Plaza Amador (Panama) and Osasuna (Spain).
