Nicol reveals New England Revolution had agreement with Fenerbahce star Alex

New England Revolution coach Steve Nicol admits they tried to sign Fenerbahce midfielder Alex.

In a sure sign of the Revs' ambition, Nicol reveals they had an agreement in place with the Brazil international.

He told thedrugisfootball.com: "We actually had a deal done with a player who's in Turkey, we thought we had it done on Monday. We were waiting on the paperwork coming through from the club who told us they were going to send the appropriate stuff and then we got a call to tell us that they changed their mind…. He was a center forward…
