Central Midfielder "Coming Next Week"

New, 2 comments

According to Erik Soler, the Red Bulls are expecting to sign a central midfielder next week. He told the New York Post...

"One or two, I hope that we can announce it at the end of next week,’’ said Backe. "We’re looking for a versatile midfield player, because as I said what I’ve learned in this league is that you can’t have experts. (You need) a guy in midfield that can play wide or central. My hope is that we can announce it at the end of next week.’’

This mystery player isn't expected to be a "classic No. 10" but "more of a holding midfielder with some attacking qualities."

It's been a long time coming, though, Soler didn't make clear if it would be one of the "young Americans with international experience" he was promising in late December.
