New York Red Bulls are determined to extend the stay of attacking midfielder Dwayne De Rosario whilst bringing in another player this summer. The Canada international, who signed with the Red Bulls earlier this year, is currently on duty at the CONCACAF Gold Cup but New York general manager says they will look to re-sign him when he returns as his contract expires at the end of this season.
"Of course we hope that we can have him here for more years, but that's the job we need to do with him,'' said Soler. "He's got an agent we relate to and speak to his representatives.
"I generally like to speak to people to see where he's at. Now he's gone; when he gets back, it's one of the things that we will do, to speak to him and see where we're at, what is possible and what is impossible, and try to figure that out.
"For me, it's the better way. Even if you end up in a situation where you couldn't keep him or you can keep him, it's better to talk about it.''
And Soler also said that there could be a new player joining the club soon but made it clear that it will not be a big-name Designated Player.
"We're evaluating every avenue. I would be surprised if we didn't do anything. I think we'll do something in the summer,'' he added. "We haven't planned for that (a DP).''
