HARRISON, N.J. (AP) American midfielder Sacha Kljestan is returning to Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls.
New York said Wednesday it had acquired the 29-year-old on a transfer from Belgium's Anderlecht. He is likely will take over the midfield role held by Tim Cahill, who was benched during the second half of last season and is expected to leave.
The Red Bulls announced the move in Orlando, Florida, where they are training for their March 8 opener at Kansas City.
