Serie B side Palermo have confirmed the exit of Egidio Arevalo Rios to Chicago Fire.
The Uruguayan international, 31, has joined the MLS side on a loan deal until December 31, 2013. Fire will then have the option to sign him outright.
Midfielder Rios only moved to the Stadio Barbera last summer from Mexican side Tijuana. He scored two goals in 27 League games.
