De Jong signed with the Galaxy on Saturday on a free transfer from AC Milan, the Los Angeles Times reports.

De Jong was released from the final two-and-a-half years of his contract with the Italian giants, allowing him to sign a one-year deal with Los Angeles for a non-DP spot, though it is believed the club used target allocation money. The Galaxy have made number of big-name signings this offseason, including Ashley Cole and Jelle Van Damme, though they are clearly all on the latter stages of their careers.

De Jong surprisingly started the Netherlands' World Cup semifinal match against Argentina on Wednesday, but he lasted only 62 minutes before he had to be subbed off.

De Jong was clearly not in top fitness for the match, and his substitution was Louis van Gaal's second of the match, one which ended up going into extra time. It is possible that he could play in the third-place game against Brazil, although it's unclear if he suffered a setback in the match that could delay his season debut with AC Milan.

De Jong suffered a tear in his groin during the Netherlands' Round of 16 win over Costa Rica on Monday, and he will be sidelined for two-to-four weeks, the Associated Press reports.

De Jong came off after just nine minutes Monday and it appears very unlikely that he will play again in the World Cup, even if the Dutch advance to the final.
