In exchange for Kimura, the Red Bulls send allocation money and the homegrown player rights to University of Akron defender/midfielder Bryan Gallego to the Portland Timbers. In addition to Kimura, the Red Bulls also get a second round draft pick, which, as of right now, is their only draft pick.
Kimura, as we noted yesterday, was out of contract. As per the team, he inked a new deal today.
In the release, Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh said Kimura would "provide depth in the fullback position" and that "his MLS experience will be a great asset for us" which makes the move seem like one for depth.
For Espindola and Olave, their acquisition from Real Salt Lake seems a little more straightforward and the deal was made official later this afternoon. The details seem don't seem any different than what we linked to last night.
