The New York Red Bulls acquired English midfielder Dru Yearwood on a transfer from Brentford F.C.

The 20-year-old will be a Young Designated Player and will occupy an international roster slot. The transfer will be complete when the Secondary Transfer Window opens Aug. 12.

"On behalf of everyone at the club, I'd like to welcome Dru," Red Bulls head of sport Kevin Thelwell said in a news release Wednesday. "Dru is a talented young player that already has a good amount of senior team appearances. He is mature beyond his years and made a great impression upon us during the interview process. We look forward to Dru joining us, continuing to grow, and being a part of what we are trying to achieve moving forward."

Yearwood made five appearances this season for Brentford in the English League Championship, England's second tier below the Premier League. Before that, he played in 61 matches for Southend United.

"I'm very excited to join the New York Red Bulls," Yearwood said. "I can't wait to get started and meet all my new teammates and some new fans, too, hopefully in the near future."
