Another American moves from the Nordic countries

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.

    I wouldn’t say he’ll “compete for playing time.” I don’t see either him or Meara starting, as I’m sure they’ll bring in a keeper who is a bit more seasoned than these two. Seems to me like this will be more of a competition for the back-up role.

  3. [...] les Red Bulls de New York auraient trouvé le successeur de Frank Rost devant le filet. Pas de controverse de gardien là-bas… pas pour l’instant du [...]

    I agree that they’ll probably pursue another keeper rather than going into 2012 with two guys with a combined zero years of first division pro experience, but we’re talking about the Red Bulls here. Soler and Backe don’t exactly inspire confidence when it comes to building an MLS roster with strong resources.
