New York Red Bull are close to securing the services of Costa Rican defender Carlos Johnson from Byrne FK in Norway, according to the team's official website. "We are very far along in our discussions with Carlos Johnson," Red Bulls technical director Jeff Agoos said. "We thought with the strong possibility with Carlos coming in and with Carlos Mendes and Jeremy Hall being able to play at that position, we felt that Chris [Leitch] would be better served playing in San Jose."
