New York City appear to be building a very strong team after they managed to get yet another player in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. After recently managing to secure the signings of David Villa, the club are expected to bring in Jeb Brovsky from Montréal Impact. However, the 25-year-old will not be playing at the club and will be part of a non-MLS team till the end of the 2014 season. New York City are also looking to sign former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, who will be available on a free transfer after deciding to leave the London outfit after 13 years.
Partnered by Manchester City, they are expected to have no trouble in meeting the wage demands of players like David Villa and Lampard. Brovsky first moved to Vancouver Whitecaps in 2011. After making almost 23 appearances for them in 2011, he moved to Montréal Impact as part of the expansion draft. He has been a regular starter for the Canadian club during the last two years. He has already played in seven out of the 13 matches for the club this campaign. Speaking about having joint one of the league’s richest teams, Brovsky expressed his delight and said that he is looking forward to winning titles.
“I’m tremendously excited to be joining New York City FC. With the talented coaching and training staff theyv’e put in place, it’s clear that this club is focused on winning. This is a big step in my life and career to be coming to play in the biggest sports city, and I can’t wait to take the field at Yankee Stadium,” said the player. “I feel very fortunate that we are in a position to add a player of Jeb’s quality this early in our process,” said New York City FC manager Jason Kreis.
