Key decisions will need to be made by the New York Red Bulls who released their roster decisions following the end of the 2021 season. Key names are either out of contract or had their options declined including: Daniel Royer, Fabio, Mathias Jorgensen, Kyle Duncan and captain Sean Davis. Expectations are that Davis will return but we know that Duncan has already departed the club for Europe.
Several names will remain in New York for the foreseeable future including Frankie Amaya who signed a three-year deal with the Red Bulls which begins at the start of next season. The team has also decided to trigger the purchase option on goalkeeper Carlos Coronel who played every game for the club in 2021. Other players like Ryan Meara, Aaron Long, Omir Fernandez and Wiki Carmona have had their options exercised and are expected to return next year.
Other names of note are Andrew Gutman and Tom Edwards who's options have expired. There isn't any news as to whether they will return to the team next season. Edwards will be heading back to England with Stoke City and Gutman will return to Atlanta United.
Remaining New York Red Bulls Roster:
Goalkeepers: Carlos Coronel, Ryan Meara, AJ Marcucci, David Jensen
Defenders: Aaron Long, Lucas Monzon, Sean Nealis, Jason Pendant, Andres Reyes, John Tolkin
Midfielders: Frankie Amaya, Wiki Carmona, Cristian Casseres Jr., Bento Estrela, Dru Yearwood, Cameron Harper, Omir Fernandez
