Rumor Central: Red Bulls sign Egyptian 'keeper ... or maybe not

By Matthew Doyle

As mentioned on an ExtraTime Radio mailbag a week back, Egypt could be one of the new hotbeds of MLS talent since the league is in crisis right now.

And it turns out that Erik Solér may have been listening. Reports out of Egypt are saying that the Red Bulls have signed goalkeeper El-Hany Soliman.

But, well, not so fast. RBNY beat writer extraordinaire Brian Lewis of the New York Post says let's hold our horses a bit.

The 27-year-old Soliman has manned the nets 24 times for the Egyptian national team (currently managed by former New York coach Bob Bradley) and has spent his entire eight-year pro career with Union Alexandria. He'd be brought in presumably to wear the No. 1 shirt ahead of Ryan Meara, who's impressed five games into his rookie season.
