The Revs are adding while the Reds are subtracting.
A day after Toronto FC lost its top two defenders to injury in a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire, the New England Revolution inked Jermaine Jones to a multi-million dollar deal.
Jones, a midfielder who appeared in every match for the U.S., at this summer’s World Cup, will be introduced Tuesday at Gillette Stadium, paving the way for his possible inclusion when New England visits BMO Field this Saturday. ESPN analyst Alexi Lalas reported Sunday that Jones will make $4.7 million in a deal that will take him through the end of next season.
“We thought Jermaine was the best player for the U.S., in the World Cup and we are excited to welcome him to New England,” Revolution investor/operator Jonathan Kraft said in a statement.
