New York about to sign Juan Pablo Angel

If rumors are to be believed, and when it comes to the Red Bulls and any foreign signings they usually are not, New York is about to sign striker Juan Pablo Angel from Aston Villa.

The deal is said to be very advanced. If signed, the Bulls will take the final year of his Villa contract, valued at about $75,000 a week, as well as extend the deal for 12 additional months.

If Angel can return to decent form, this will prove to be a huge signing, however the past three years or so have not been kind to the Columbian.

If this deal were true then one would expect Angel would join the team during the August transfer window, as the MLS transfer deadline was this past Sunday.

Update: Looks like this rumor is true as Arena just annouced that Angel has been signed as a designated player. I did not hear when he will join the club, but it looks like it might be sooner then August.
