In the last few weeks, we’ve seen defender Jonathan Borrajo leave his Norwegian Adeccoligaen club to join the New York Red Bulls and midfielder Michael Thomas leave Swedish Superettan club Ljungskile to join Sporting Kansas City.
Now, we can complete the trifecta of Northern Europe as Jeremy Vuolo, who played for AC Oulu in the Finnish Ykkönen, will be joining Borrajo with the Red Bulls.
“I received a phone call from Todd Hoffard, the Red Bulls goalkeeper coach, in mid-November. He told me they were aware of my success in Finland and would be interested in bringing me back to the States. I signed an official contract earlier this week for the 2012 MLS season,” said Vuolo.
Vuolo had eleven shutouts in twenty-four matches in Finland. He’ll join a Red Bull team that currently doesn’t have any goalkeepers under contract and will compete with second-round draft pick Ryan Meara of Fordham for playing time.
