Argentine defender Walter Garcia and New York Red Bulls have agreed terms.

The 25-year old defender will be added to the Red Bull’s list as soon as he receives his P-1 visa and passes a physical.

"There's still some issues, P-1, his medical. But in terms of the financial part of it, we've come to an agreement,'' said sporting director Jeff Agoos, who said Garcia would be signed through the end of this season with a club option for next year.

"Walter's a guy we're bringing in with the intention of taking a longer look at, we have the ability to look at the rest of the season. So he'll be signed to our roster, we'll have a look at him and if we like him we'd extend the contract to next year.''

Garcia last played with Argentine club Nacional and has also had stints in Italy with Calcio Catania and Russia with Rubin Kazan.
