LONDON (AP) The New York Red Bulls have completed the signing of former Manchester City and Chelsea midfielder Shaun Wright-Phillips on a free transfer.

The former England international will join up with his brother Bradley, a striker with the Red Bulls. He is eligible to play against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Wright-Phillips last played for English club Queens Park Rangers but left when his contract expired at the end of the 2014-15 season.

He also played for Chelsea, where he won the Premier League in 2006, and Manchester City. He made 36 international appearances with England.


Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch says Wright-Phillips ''has performed at the highest levels of the game for his entire career'' and ''brings a wealth of talent and experience.''
