Former Socceroos defender David Carney has joined MLS outfit the New York Red Bulls.

Carney to join Cahill in New York

August 8, 2013

Forgotten Socceroos defender David Carney is set to join Tim Cahill at the New York Red Bulls.

The 29-year-old just needs his visa to be cleared and to pass a medical to link up with the Major League Soccer outfit.

Carney's signing ends a near year-long search for a club after being cut by FC Bunyodko in Uzbekistan.

"David is an experienced international player, who can play on the left side both as a defender and a midfielder, and he provides us much needed cover," Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh said.

"He is versatile and athletic and has competed at a high level.

"We are pleased to bring David to New York and look forward to his contribution as a member of the Red Bulls."

Carney has suffered a succession of shoulder injuries and faded from Australia's plans for next year's World Cup.
