As expected, the Red Bulls are set to sign Venezuelan national team midfielder Jorge Rojas. The 31-year-old is arriving in New York today and will undergo a physical on Tuesday ahead of signing a contract with the Red Bulls. He will not be eligible to play for the Red Bulls until after the July 15 open of the summer transfer window.
Rojas has the ability to play both in an attacking midfield role and on the left flank. His arrival should give Red Bulls head coach Juan Carlos Osorio a more reliable option in a playmaking midfield role, though he can also play left wing, which would free up Dave Van Den Bergh to play left back, a position he has been more steady at than Kevin Goldthwaite.
With Rojas set to sign his deal, what is next for the Red Bulls? A forward, defensive midfielder and central defender are all on the agenda, but Osorio may not be able to fill all three needs without making a trade.
