Report: Roy Miller in Talks to Return for 2014

Victor Decolongon

A league source told Big Apple Soccer Roy Miller is in talks to re-sign with the Red Bulls.

Last month, I postulated that Roy Miller would be out if the Red Bulls planned on keeping David Carney around. After all, they'd be sinking a whole lot of money into the left back position, in a salary cap league no less.

Turns out, that might not be the case. A league source told Big Apple Soccer's Kristian Dyer that Miller and the Red Bulls are in talks to keep the Costa Rican in red and white for a little while longer.

If it happens, it'll set up a nice position battle between Carney and Miller in training camp. There's no real, clear cut winner based on last season. Miller has his critics and defenders, while Carney did little to really make the position his own.

Re-signing Miller might be a smart move, though, even if they are spending a lot at one position. Both Miller and Carney are national team players of varying degrees. Before the achilles injury that kept him out of the Red Bulls' line-up, Miller was a regular for Los Ticos, despite Costa Rican boss Jorge Luis Pinto's lack of enthusiasm for the Red Bulls' defensive style. Meanwhile, Carney is still a fringe player for Australiafailing to get a call for their friendly against Costa Rica last week. That leaves some space, and some motivation, for whoever is left out of the starting XI.

Not to mention, they've got allocation money to spend.
