America de Cali's loss has turned out to be the New England Revolution's gain.
The Revolution announced the signings of centerback John Lozano and attacking midfielder Fernando Cardenas from the traditional Colombian giant, which was relegated to the country's second division last month.
New England benefits as a result of some of the roster turnover at the club, bringing in two Colombians with top-flight South American experience. Lozano, 27, had been with America de Cali since 2010 after an extended time with Deportivo Pereira and he'll press for time alongside A.J. Soares in central defense.
The 23-year-old, left-footed Cardenas, meanwhile, played in the Copa Libertadores while on loan from Pereira to Once Caldas in 2010. He made his way to America de Cali last summer and played in eight games, scoring a goal in the relegation playoff series.
