New York Red Bulls 2022 season is over and now the team has revealed the roster decisions on who will stay and who will be departing the club. The biggest departures are those that were staying at the club via loan, although they still may return depending on negotiations. Caden Clark, Kyle Duncan and Elias Manoel have expired loans with no word as to whether they will be returning with the team in any capacity.
The team has exercised the options of goalkeeper AJ Marcucci as well as defenders Hassan Ndam, Dylan Nealis and Matt Nocita. Midfielders Wikelman Carmona, Omir Fernandez, Cristian Casseres Jr. and Steven Sserrwadda will also be returning.
A surprise name to be renewed is Jake LaCava. The forward has been missing from New York in 2022, having last made an appearance for New York Red Bulls II in 2021. He was on loan with the Tampa Bay Rowdies who will play Memphis 901 FC in the next round of the USL Championship playoffs. LaCava finished the season with 12 goals for Tampa and factored into last week's 3-1 victory over Miami FC in the playoff quarterfinals.
Aaron Long will also be out of contract with little word yet as to whether he will be returning to the club.
New York Red Bulls Current Roster:
Goalkeepers: Carlos Coronel, Ryan Meara, AJ Marcucci
Defenders: Hassan Ndam, Dylan Nealis, Sean Nealis, Matt Nocita, Andres Reyes, John Tolkin
Midfielders: Frankie Amaya, Wikelman Carmona, Cristian Casseres Jr., Daniel Edelman, Bento Estrela, Cameron Harper, Omir Fernandez, Lewis Morgan, Luquinhas, Steven Sserwadda, Dru Yearwood
