It's been a quiet off-season for the New England Revolution, who have only re-signed Brad Knighton, traded for Jeremy Hall and acquired the rights for Tristan Bowen since the MLS Cup Final. That should change soon, however, according to a tweet sent by club president Brian Bilello.
Should have a player signing to announce today or tomorrow. More in the works as well.— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) January 14, 2015
Biello declined to give specifics about the deal, but did note that most of last year's major contributors will be returning for the 2015 season.
Sorry no hints. Overall we still have some work to do but keep in mind we're returning a lot of our senior (top 20) roster from last season.— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) January 14, 2015
The news of a player acquisition is exciting for Revolution fans, who have been anxiously been waiting for moves. The roster currently stands at 18 signed players, a number that includes the on-loan Jerry Bengtson. When filling out the roster, the front office will surely be looking to add forwards and defensive depth.
UPDATE: Bilello confirmed via Twitter that Teal Bunbury re-signing with the Revs was the player move he was referring to earlier.
