It's no secret that the New York Red Bulls need goalkeeping help, and that help is on the way.

The Red Bulls have signed former Hamburg SV goalkeeper Frank Rost as the club's third Designated Player, the team announced on Wednesday. Rost is expected to be available for the club's next game, which is at Chivas USA on Saturday.

Current keepers Bouna Coundoul and Greg Sutton have each made their fair share of goalkeeping errors this season, with neither being able to outdistance the other to claim the No. 1 job between the posts. Now both appear are headed for permanent backup roles, with the 38-year-old Rost, a Bundesliga veteran who spent time at Werder Bremen and Schalke, entering the fold.

Do you think Rost is the answer to the Red Bulls' goalkeeping woes? Wish the team had gone in another direction?
