Prior to joining Hearts in January 2017, Struna played for Greek top flight club PS Giannina and Polish first division side Cracovia.
Report Blue City Radio reports that Patrick Vieira said the club is looking to add a center back before the Sept. 15 roster freeze, and that a CB trialist was in training on Aug. 23. This comes two days after the news that starting CB Maxime Chanot will likely miss the remainder of the regular season after undergoing successful bilateral sports hernia surgery. A subsequent report from Glenn Crooks on Twitter on Aug. 24 is that the trialist is Manchester United product Tom Thorpe, a 24-year-old who last played for Bolton Wanderers and was an English youth international.
Report Le Parisien reported on Aug. 9 that Olympique Lyonnais want to add New York City FC M Yangel Herrera to their squad. Herrera, 19, has quickly established himself this season at NYCFC, making 12 MLS regular season appearances and scoring a goal and assist from a holding midfield position. Herrera is currently on loan at NYCFC from Manchester City.
Trade Kristian Dyer reported on Twitter on Aug. 8 that NYCFC would be making a trade, sending an international roster slot to an unnamed team in exchange for allocation money. The trade was confirmed on Aug. 10, with NYCFC's international roster slot traded to Vancouver for the rest of the season in exchange for $75,000 General Allocation Money.
Report Following the success of Yangel Herrera, it appears New York City FC could be getting another young Venezuelan player next season. DirectTV Sports' Federico Rojas reports that Herrera's Under-20 World Cup teammate, Nahuel Ferraresi will join NYCFC after spending the rest of 2017 playing for Uruguayan club Torque, which is also owned by the City Football Group.
Report In a TV segment on MSG, Metro New York's Kristian Dyer said multiple English Premier League and English League Championship sides are considering a move for NYCFC's Jack Harrison, but that the asking price could be above the $5 million Chelsea paid to acquire Matt Miazga from the Red Bulls.
Report According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, New York City FC are interested in Spain and Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta. NYCFC forward David Villa played with Iniesta at both Barca and with the Spanish national team, and, according to the report, has talked with Iniesta about moving to New York. The 33-year-old midfielder, whose future at Barcelona is in doubt, is also reportedly being chased by Juventus.
Report French reports linked Patrick Vieira to the managerial vacancy at Ligue 1 side St. Etienne on June 5. But NYCFC's head coach told the New York Post that he's committed to City: “The only thing is you can’t control reports from journalists. The thing is that it is a really interesting project and I am into it. I love every single day of it. Speculation is part of our world and I get used to it.”
