Report: Revolution to sign Bengtson

The New England Revolution are in need of bolstering their attacking options, and it appears help is on the way.

According to reports out of Honduras, 25-year-old striker Jerry Bengtson is set to sign with the Revolution from Honduran club Motagua. Bengtson has reportedly been sold and will agree to a four-year deal with the Revolution, but there is no word as to how much the transfer fee was or if Bengtson will be a Designated Player.

A Honduras international, Bengtson has scored eight times in 22 games for his country since debuting in 2010. He should give more of an attacking punch to the Revolution, who have scored 22 goals through 16 matches this season.

Bengtson is the latest Honduran to make the jump to MLS, with his international teammate, Oscar Boniek Garcia, joining the Houston Dynamo as a Designated Player last month.

What do you think of Bengtson possibly joining the Revolution? Do you see him thriving in MLS? Expecting New England to make the playoffs now?

  1. Very excited about this move – this guy has goals in him. Stay healthy and produce (so, the anti-Moreno) and we’ll be singing his name for years. Welcome to New England Jerry!

  2. Good player, I hope they give him time to adjust as it is his first time playing outside the country…and he is relatively young.

  3. Jeremiah White was always injured during the season and then he fell down the depth chart behind Rowe, Cardenas, Fagundez and Guy.

  4. The Revs could make a nice little run now.

    Kinda like an attack featuring Sene, Bengston, Nguyen, Feilhaber, Joseph, and Rowe as a sub.

  5. Jerry White had concussion issues. My guess is that it looked like he wasn’t going to see enough of the field in the remainder of the season to make his salary worth it, meager though it was.

    Since 7/1 was the guaranteed contract date, they cut him rather than pay him a whole year’s salary for a small handful of ineffectual appearances.

  6. What ever happened with Jeremiah White? I thought he was supposed to be a speedy attacking option, but he was cut last week. Was he just not very good? Injury prone? I never had the chance to see him play because he was never on the field. I expected more from someone who had a cap with the USMNT.

    Bengston is a quality signing. Good pick up for the Revs.

  7. This is exactly the direction I want to see the MLS go. Start pulling all the best players in Central America, then Mexico and then South America. There are obviously hurdles to all of this (salary being the biggest), but the market is there and I feel that they can build on the best Latino players far better than anywhere else in the world. Good move.
