Miguel Layun rejects big-money MLS move, says league isn’t challenging enough

Miguel Layun has rejected a move to MLS, saying that the league did not offer enough of a challenge.

He made the comments during a short interview with ESPN.

The 29-year-old full-back started his career at Veracruz, but is best remembered in Mexico for his time at Club America between 2009 and 2015. In 2014, he captained his side to the league title after beating Tigres in the Liguilla final.

He left for Europe in 2014 and has since played for Watford, Porto, and Sevilla. He joined Sevilla on loan in January and has been a regular starter for the Spanish side.

Earlier in the summer, he was linked with a move to Premier League side West Ham, but there has been no further developments in the story.

It is unclear whether he will stay at Sevilla for another year, return to Porto, or look for a move elsewhere.
