Both will be available to join Atlanta United when the MLS secondary transfer window opens July 7.

The 24-year-old Purata bolster’s Atlanta’s depth at centerback and, at 6-foot-2, could help defend against set pieces that have troubled the team this season. The team lost star defender Miles Robinson for the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles.

Purata’s contract was acquired on loan, which has an option to extend to 2023 and a purchase option. Technical director Carlos Bocanegra described the newest addition as “a talented centerback with an extremely high ceiling.”The 26-year-old Gudiño gives United another option in goal after the loss of captain Brad Guzan, also to a season-ending Achilles injury. Veteran Bobby Shuttleworth took over the No. 1 job after Guzan went down, but Rocco Ríos Novo got his first MLS start this past Sunday in a 2-0 win over Miami.

Atlanta now has a goalkeeper with 164 professional appearances, plus five appearances for the Mexican national team. A free agent, the 6-foot-5 Gudiño was acquired on loan with an option to extend after the 2022 season.
