HARRISON, N.J. – The Red Bulls have loaned defender Gideon Baah to Red Bulls II, the club announced Friday.

Baah will play for the club’s United Soccer League affiliate for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old was placed on the Major League Soccer season-ending injury reserve prior to this season after suffering a broken leg last summer. He hasn’t played in a competitive match since 2016.

“Gideon has made slow but steady progress, and we are pleased to see him ready to re-join game action,” Red Bulls sporting director Denis Hamlett said in a statement. “One of the benefits of having our USL and MLS teams work so closely together is the ability to keep players in our environment, under the care of our staff in situations like this.”

The Accra, Ghana native appeared in nine games for the Red Bulls in 2016, his first season with the club.
