- Robbie Russell, Summer Transfers
Probably a move that not too many people outside of Utah know about or even care about for that matter. But Real Salt Lake have added some more depth to their midfield today by signing Robbie Russell from Viborg in Denmark.
The 28-year-old is expected to join the team in the next day or two, and be available for RSL’s next league game, against Toronto at home on Monday.
I mentioned Russell on a possible move to MLS back in June. He was originally drafted by the Galaxy after his days in college with Duke, but he decided to not sign with the club and pursue work elsewhere in Europe.
I like this move for RSL because Russell is a very fast guy that will give this club some options on the wings and through the middle of the pitch. He’s one of those guys that is eager to take on people and should be a solid addition to this club as they push for the playoffs here.
RSL fans, is this the guy you’ve been wanting this summer?
