New York Red Bulls are linked with Celtic forward Cameron Harper according to The Herald in Scotland. The American winger has found it difficult to break out of the Celtic reserves and now looks to come to New York in order to further advance his career.
The move comes with a major need as the Red Bulls have suffered in the forward position. While Harper isn't necessarily an out-and-out striker, he has experience in several forward positions that could make him one of the more dangerous players for the club.
Initially it appeared as if New York was going to wait on a move after Harper signed a pre-contract. However, it appears that the team wants him sooner and both sides have agreed to a transfer fee. The amount is undisclosed but Harper's move is one that represents and invigorated side that, at times, was woefully under-manned last season in the forward position.
Harper was born in Sacramento, California and joined Celtic last July. The move brings him back to the United States where he will more than likely be featured on a more consistent basis in either the MLS club or the USL New York Red Bulls II.
Confirmation on this transfer is still pending and anything can happen. However, it appears that New York continues to make moves with less than 60 days remaining until the start of the 2021 season.
