According to a recent article by the Denver Post, the Colorado Rapids have inquired about signing Colombian midfielder Jamie Castrillón for the 2012 MLS season. Castrillón is 28-years-old and currently plies his trade with Independiente Medellín in the Colombian first division. Castrillón also has 29 appearances for the Colombia national team and has scored 5 international goals.

The article states that talks have been ongoing between the Rapids and Castrillón. There have been reports that the player was set to remain in Colombia with club side Millionaires. However, with interest coming from the Denver-based MLS side, the player reportedly changed his mind and wanted to enter talks with the Rapids.

Colorado head coach Oscar Pareja has his sights set on attacking midfielders from South America and Jamie Castrillón is high on his list of potential new signings for the club. It is also possible that Castrillón would be a DP, or designated player, for the Colorado Rapids. This would be the first DP for the Rocky Mountain club.
