Kyle Duncan is back with the Red Bulls – on loan – again.

The Red Bulls announced Sunday that it had acquired Brooklyn, N.Y. native and defender on a season-long loan from K.V. Oostende with an option to buy, pending the receipt of International Transfer Certificate.

Duncan spent the end of 2022 on loan with the Red Bulls, where he made nine appearances and tallied one assist.

“We are very excited to have Kyle [Duncan] back at the club following his loan spell at the end of last season,” Red Bulls sporting director Denis Hamlett said in a statement. “He knows the club very well and has had much success here, and we are looking forward to see him continue that this season.”

Duncan, 25, spent six months of last season with K.V. Oostende before joining the Red Bulls on loan in August. He made seven appearances for the club and logged 532 minutes for the Belgian side.

“Kyle has shown his qualities over the last couple years with us and has a lot of experience in MLS,” Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber said in a statement. “We are happy to have him back with us.”

Duncan spent the previous four seasons with the Red Bulls. He has made 81 MLS appearances, contributing five goals and 11 assists. In his last full season with New York in 2021 he made 32 appearances, 27 starts, and recorded one goal and two assists. Duncan was a member of the 2018 Supporters’ Shield winning side.
