Notts County’s Rodgers to join NYRB in January

Notts County forward Luke Rodgers will become a New York Red Bulls player in January according to general manager Erik Soler.

The 28-year old Englishman has been linked with the MLS club for some time now but has been unable to gain visa entry to the USA after being arrested for affray in his homeland.

But Soler says that a January move is highly likely: "We expect to have him in January. That’s what we expect. It's something that Hans (Backe) is very happy about. He wants the speed and work rate.''
