Los Angeles FC parted ways with starting goalkeeper Tyler Miller, trading him to Minnesota United, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported Thursday.

According to The Athletic, LAFC will receive $150,000 in general allocation money and $50,000 in targeted allocation money for Miller's rights.

Miller is expected to be the starting goalkeeper in Minnesota, just as he was for LAFC when he played in 61 games over two seasons. He had 10 shutouts in 2018 and nine more in 2019, while also getting his first invite to camp with the United States Men's National Team last year.

A move seemed to be pending once LAFC acquired veteran Dutch goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer on Wednesday. In Minnesota, Miller will replace Vito Mannone, who failed to reach a new deal with the Loons.

Before playing with LAFC, Miller made just two appearances over two seasons with the Seattle Sounders, going 1-1-0.
