Cahill, 33, arrived in New York midway through the 2012 season as a Designated Player, but did not make a strong impact, registering a goal and three assists in 12 starts for the Red Bulls. Still, he brings an impressive resume, having registered 443 league apperances in a 14-year career in England with Millwall and then Everton, tallying 108 goals and 65 assists.
MLSsoccer.com reached out to the Red Bulls regarding the report, but has not yet received comment.
