NYRB get Espindola, Olave from RSL

New York Red Bull have acquired South American pair Fabian Espindola and Jamison Olave from Real Salt Lake.

The duo head to the Red Bull Arena in exchange for allocation money after six and five years in Utah respectively.

"Fabian and Jamison are players who have excelled in Major League Soccer and provide an immediate boost to our squad," said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh.

"Fabian is a pacy, technical forward who will be a strong complement to the players currently on our roster, while Jamison is a fast, dominant centerback who has shown that he is one of the best at his position in MLS. We are thrilled to bring them to New York as we prepare for the 2013 season."

27-year old Argentine forward Espindola arrives in New York after making 125 appearances for RSL, scoring 35 goals, whilst 31-year old Colombian defender Olave, who is a two-time MLS Best XI and All-Star (2010 and 2011), played 120 times for the Sandy outfit.
