It’s been a trying off-season for New England Revolution fans, as the team has only signed one player since the new year. That, however, could change soon, according to Revolution President Brian Bilello.
On Saturday, Bilello confirmed that signings are coming, this time saying that announcements could be made before or early into preseason.
@ggomes1113 multiple things in process and we'll have intl. signings before the season and likely before/early in preseason— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) January 14, 2017
The comment is nothing new, as Bilello and General Manager Michael Burns have been promising multiple international signings for weeks. That said, the more specific timeline should be a source of optimism.
Similarly, head coach Jay Heaps recently hyped what’s to come during an interview with Kyle McCarthy of the Boston Herald.
“In the end, we were happy to add these players in the SuperDraft, and we have huge, huge targets that we’re working on for some key positions that we’ll hopefully continue to get some feedback on in the next couple of weeks,” Heaps commented.
