The Red Bulls could have a new midfielder soon if a deal between the Major League Soccer side and Brentford goes through.
According to The Daily Mail, the teams have agreed to a deal for the 20-year-old Dru Yearwood that could be worth as much as $1.8 million.
A native of Harlow, England, Yearwood joined the English Championship side from Southend United last summer, but had played only five times this past season. He signed a four-year contract with Brentford on Aug. 5, 2019.
Yearwood had participated in the Southend United youth sysem at 11 before he was promoted to the first team in 2017. He was nominated as Apprentice of the Year award at the 2018 EFL Awards. He did not score in 53 appearances for Southend United.
He had been called up to the England Under-18 national team in 2018, but he didn’t play due to a hamstring injury.
