UPDATE (4:15): Kapfenberger SV has announced the signing of Dimitry Imbongo.

Another former New England Revolution player could soon be moving to Europe as Dimitry Imbongo is on trial with Austrian club Kapfenberger SV.

The move appears on Transfermarkt.com but area journalist Marco Mitterböck provided clarification that a deal isn’t in place yet.

Imbongo was signed by the Revs on July 16, 2012. Over the course of two-and-a-half seasons, the striker contributed four goals and four assists in 32 regular season appearances. Imbongo started both legs of the Eastern Conference Championship in 2013 and scored an away goal against eventual MLS Cup winners Sporting KC.

Imbongo alternated between a starter and reserve during his time in New England. He also developed a reputation as a hothead, totaling three red cards, all in 2013.

After making only two appearances in 2014, Imbongo was shipped to the Colorado Rapids in a multi-player trade. Soon after the trade’s announcement, Imbongo was waived.

Kapfenberger are currently in eighth place in the 1. Liga table with 22 points, one point safe of relegation.
