New York Red Bulls snag Robinson

The New York Red Bulls have acquired Welsh former national

midfielder Carl Robinson from Toronto FC for a fourth-round pick in

the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.

The Red Bulls announced the move Thursday. They say Robinson

will be added to the roster pending a visa approval.

The 33-year-old Robinson has appeared in 74 games with

Toronto over the past three years, mostly as a defensive

midfielder. He had two assists in 21 games last season.

Before coming to MLS, Robinson played for a number of English

clubs: Portsmouth in 2002, playing 15 games, before being loaned to

Sheffield Wednesday and Walsall. He played with Norwich in 2006.

Robinson has earned 52 caps for Wales since making his senior

international debut in 1999.
