Andres Ivan - playing for Waldhof

New York Red Bulls sign Romanian right winger Andreas Ivan


The New York Red Bulls made their first move of the Secondary Transfer Window, signing Romanian attacking midfielder Andreas Ivan, pending receipt of his P-1 Visa, the club announced Friday.

The 23-year-old right winger joined the Red Bulls on trial for a week last month and will occupy an International spot on the roster.

"We are pleased to welcome Andreas to our club," Red Bulls sporting director Denis Hamlett said in a statement. "Andreas is a young, dynamic player with a lot of qualities we like. He has already gained a good amount of professional experience and immediately improves our roster. We look forward to seeing how he can continue to grow as a player and contribute to our club.”

Ivan has played professionally in Germany since the 2013-14 season, when he was promoted from the Stuttgart U-19s to the senior team. He has 96 senior team appearances with five clubs, most recently SV Waldhof Mannheim in the Regionalliga Südwest where he had a career-high eight goals in 31 appearances.

"I'm happy to welcome Andy to our club," Red Bulls coach Chris Armas said. "Andy is a dynamic attacker who can unbalance defenses with and without the ball. He has a fearlessness and a great energy about him which will help him fit in right away. We think he's going to be a great addition to our team.”
