NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — English Premier League club Everton says they have agreed to sell Australian midfielder Tim Cahill to the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.
Everton said Monday on its website that Cahill “will move to the Red Bulls for a nominal fee, subject to agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.”
Cahill is expected to travel to the United States in the next few days. The 32-year-old joined Everton from Millwall in 2004, scoring 68 goals in 278 appearances.
A source told the New York Post that the announcement was “premature.” Cahill would first “have to travel to New York and pass a physical” before it becomes official, the paper reported.
“We are aware of Everton’s statement regarding midfielder Tim Cahill and our club. However, we have no comment at this time regarding him or any other non-New York player,” the Red Bulls said in a statement.
