The Columbus Crew acquired midfielder Aziel Jackson from St. Louis City on Tuesday in exchange for $650,000 in general allocation money.

St. Louis will receive a guaranteed $325,000 in 2024 and $325,000 in 2025, with up to an additional $250,000 if certain performance metrics are met.

City will also receive a percentage of any future transfer fees if the 22-year-old Jackson is moved outside of MLS.

"Aziel is a young and dynamic talent who will fit within our system and offer our coaching staff some added tactical flexibility in midfield," Crew general manager Issa Tall said. "We look forward to Aziel's continued progression within our club and culture, which emphasizes individual player development within a team-focused structure."

Jackson will be available for Columbus when the summer transfer window opens on July 18. He recorded one goal and five assists in 41 MLS matches with St. Louis from 2023-24.
