SK Brann midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli confirms likely New York Red Bulls move

SK Brann midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli is set to join New York Red Bulls in January.

The Norway international's move has been confirmed by the player himself.

"I heard that Hans Backe tried to buy me for 25 million Norwegian kroner when he was head coach for Copenhagen,'' Solli told Nettavisen.

"You don't have to be a genius to understand that playing with people like Rafael Marquez and Thierry Henry would be awesome."'
