Crew acquire D Brunner

COLUMBUS, OHIO (TICKER) —The Columbus Crew on Wednesday signed defender Eric Brunner after acquiring him in a trade with the New York Red Bulls.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Crew sent a conditional selection in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft to the Red Bulls in exchange for Brunner, who has yet to play in an MLS game.

A second-round pick of New York in 2008, Brunner opened the season with the Red Bulls before joining Miami FC of the U.S. Soccer League’s First Division.
