New York Red Bulls hope to have Luke Rodgers back next month.

The striker is currently playing at Lillestrom due to visa difficulties.

"I think we're going to know quite quickly if it's going to happen. We have started to work on that again. I keep in touch with the people who work on that. We hope to have him back when the window opens in the end of June,'' said GM Erik Soler to the New York Post. "That's what we hope for. That would be a great relief for us. But we are working on alternative possibilities.

"He knows the way we play, he knows Hans (Backe, coach). He doesn't know Kenny too much but he knows Thierry, the rest of the team. That would be the best solution for us.''
