New York City FC acquired defender Eric Miller from Minnesota United Monday for $50,000 in General Allocation Money.
MNUFC acquired Miller and $50,000 in GAM from Colorado Rapids in exchange for Sam Nicholson May 2, 2018.
Miller has appeared 24 times for United.
“One of our goals during the summer transfer window was to add depth at the right back position and Eric is a player who can come in and immediately strengthen our team.,” NYCFC sporting director Claudio Reyna said.
“He’s a versatile player who performs well in different positions which gives our roster added flexibility when playing varying systems.
“Eric brings with him over 100 games of MLS experience and is exactly the type of person who fits into the culture we’ve built here at NYCFC.”
In 2017, Miller played 30 matches for Colorado and was named the team’s defensive player of the year. The 26-year-old Minnesota native helped anchor a Rapids defense in 2016 that finished runners-up in the Supporters’ Shield standings.
Miller has appeared in 110 league matches since beginning his career with the Montreal Impact in 2014.
