Palsson reportedly signs with Dutch side NEC

Victor Pálsson’s brief time with the New York Red Bulls appears to be done, and he reportedly has a new deal with Dutch side Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie.

The 21-year-old Icelandic winger was brought to New York in February by then head coach Hans Backe, but Pálsson struggled to establish himself as a reliable starter. He started four games and made 16 appearances overall, but failed to log a goal or an assist for the club before he was loaned to NEC with an option to sign in August. He has scored two goals in 12 games while on loan.

He has also played for Scottish side Hibernian during his career, and in 2011 was reportedly banned from all nightclubs in Edinburgh for urinating on a wall inside a club following a match.

The Red Bulls did not immediately respond to a request for comment from MLSsoccer.com.
