New York Red Bulls sign USMNT midfielder Sacha Kljestan

The slow march of United States men’s national team players back to Major League Soccer continues.

Long linked with a move to the L.A. Galaxy, USMNT midfielder Sacha Kljestan instead signed Wednesday with the New York Red Bulls. NYRB agreed to transfer terms — the terms of which were not disclosed, per MLS policy — with Belgium club Anderlecht.

Kljestan, 29, has played for Anderlecht for the last six seasons, previously played with Chivas USA. He has earned 46 national team caps, though just one came in 2014 and he was not the U.S. World Cup squad.

The California native follows Brek Shea (Orlando City), Mix Diskerud (New York City FC) and Jozy Altidore (Toronto FC) as US national-team players to sign with MLS this offseason, following a growing trend that was highlighted by the returns of Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders) in 2013 as well as Michael Bradley (Toronto FC) and Maurice Edu (Philadelphia Union) prior to the 2014 campaign.
