USA U20 Duka signs with MLS

USA U20 international Dilly Duka has signed a four-year deal with MLS according to the Washington Post.

USA U20 international Dilly Duka has signed a four-year deal with MLS according to the Washington Post.

The midfielder left Rutgers University during fall to explore opportunities in Europe but a source close to him has confirmed that he has completed a deal to play in North America’s top league from next season.

“It's done," the source said.

Duka will now be available to all MLS clubs in the league draft in January and it seems increasingly likely that he will end up in his home city of New York as the Red Bulls have pick two.

A product of New York’s youth system, Duka is adamant he wants to play for the club but is in danger of going to expansion club Philadelphia Union who have the first pick.

It is believed Duka opted to sign with MLS because he would be guaranteed more money in his debut season than he would be if he signed in Europe.
