San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Anthony Ampaipitakwong, an American of Thai heritage, was transfered to Buriram United of the Thai Premier League on Monday for an undisclosed fee.

Ampaipitakwong played in 12 matches for the Earthquakes last year in his first season in the North American league but had not played for San Jose this season.

The Earthquakes also released midfielder Tressor Moreno, who set-up three goals in 12 appearances for the club this season but was unhappy about limited playing time.

The Earthquakes have the best record in Major League Soccer at 11-4-4 for 37 points, one better than Real Salt Lake atop the Western Conference.
