It looks like the Red Bulls have a new forward.
Norwegian international forward Fredrik Gulbrandsen has been loaned to New York by its sister club Red Bull Salzburg, according to an interview he gave to Verdens Gang.
Gulbrandsen’s deal has been completed and is a one-year loan, ESPN FC reported.
He will fill the international roster spot that was freed up when the team placed center back Gideon Baah on the season-ending injury list Wednesday.
According to Verdens Gang, Gulbrandsen said that a delay in acquiring his visa had prevented him from joining the Red Bulls, but that is now in the past.
The 24-year-old Gulbrandsen has not exactly filled the net for Red Bull Salzburg, having tallied but two goals in 17 league and cup matches in Austria. It has been a while since he last played for the club, as a substitute defender in a 3-0 victory over Wolfsberger AC Dec. 17.
Prior to Salzburg, Gulbrandsen scored 19 goals for Molde. He also performed for Lillestrom and Lyn.
He has made three international appearances for Norway with no goals.
