The Red Bulls added two new players to their ranks this week, signing F Stefano Bonomo and M Florian Valot from NYRBII.
Drafted in the second round by the Red Bulls in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, Bonomo was signed by NYRBII that season but had a breakout year in 2017, scoring 13 goals in just 16 games.
A former PSG and Monaco youth product, Valot joined NYRBII in 2016 after playing college soccer at Rider University. At the start of the 2017 season, Valot served as captain of NYRBII and finished the year with 10 goals and adding seven assists. Valot will take up an international roster spot as a member of the roster.
The Red Bulls have already lost two strikers with Mike Grella and Gonzalo Veron getting picked up by Columbus and D.C. in the MLS Re-Entry draft. At the very least, Valot and Bonomo will get a chance to claim those roster spots.
