Galaxy are the most successful club in the MLS with five titles but have not won the championship since 2014.

“Joseph has been a key member of one of the best clubs in Belgium’s top flight and one of Africa’s most prominent national teams over the past few years and we are thrilled to announce that he is joining the LA Galaxy,” said LA Galaxy General Manager Will Kuntz.

“We are looking forward to adding such a dynamic attacker in the prime of his career to our group and for him to be a key figure in our pursuit of our next trophies.”

Painstil enjoyed a decent career in Europe, where he won the Belgium league title once with KRC Genk. He scored 61 goals across 228 matches.
