New York Red Bulls have announced the signing of midfielder Ryan Maduro.
The 25-year old had been training with the Red Bulls during the pre-season and impressed enough to win a contract enabling him to be added to the senior roster.
Red Bulls general manager Erik Soler said that Maduro, who has trained with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Blackpool and Belenenses in the past 12 months, had really earned his opportunity with the MLS outfit.
"Ryan earned his spot on the roster after a solid showing in preseason," said Soler. "He is a young midfielder from the northeast who will provide us depth and can develop within our squad."
