Former New York Red Bulls right-back Carlos Johnson is reportedly getting set for a MLS return.

The 26-year old Costa Rica international last played with Colombian outfit Once Caldas in May but has recently been training with local club Cartagines in a bid to keep fit before his next move.

LaRepublica.net suggests that Johnson, who made 12 appearances for the Red Bulls last season, will be back in North America’s top flight for the 2011 season when he signs with an unnamed club in January.
