U.S. international DaMarcus Beasley was transfer listed by his club as the Liga MX transfer deadline came to a close.
Beasley said his preference was to stay at Puebla, but wasn’t sure at the time of his future.
“I would like to stay in Mexico, and hopefully we can make that happen” said Beasley. “I feel comfortable there. The teams, they know me there. I feel very comfortable in Puebla. The city, the people. I love my experience there.”
No transfer materialized, and now the defender/midfielder has signed a new contract at Puebla, the club president Jesus Lopez Chargoy confirmed.
“DaMarcus Beasley was won over by love for La Franja and has accepted the offer we made him” said Chargoy on Twitter.
It’s no wonder Beasley has enjoyed his time at Puebla. The 31-year-old resurrected not only his club career there, but his international one as well.
Jurgen Klinsmann has said quality club performances can sway his mind on who to call up to the squad. The Indiana product has made 54 league appearances for Puebla since coming over from Hannover in 2011.
Beasley will miss Tuesday’s USMNT qualifier due to yellow card accumulation.
