The New York Red Bulls announced that they have signed defender/midfielder David Carney. Carney, 29, will be added to the roster pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate.
Carney was most recently with Uzbekistan’s FC Bunyodkor, and began his career with English side Everton, where he competed in academy and reserve sides. In between, Carney spent time with A-League club Sydney FC, England’s Sheffield United, Dutch side FC Twente, English side Blackpool, and Spain’s AD Alcorcon.
“David is an experienced international player, who can play on the left side both as a defender and a midfielder, and he provides us much needed cover,” said Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh. “He is versatile and athletic and has competed at a high level.”
Internationally, Carney has earned 46 caps for Australia and scored six goals. He was part of the Socceroos’ 2010 World Cup and 2007 and 2011 Asian Cup squads.
