In hopes to beef up a defense that has led in the league most goals so far, the New York Red Bulls announced today that they have signed defender Leo Krupnik. The 29-year old Krupnik cannot be added to the roster until after the international transfer window opens on Wednesday. The club is also awaiting receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

Krupnik was originally drafted in the sixth round, 68th overall by the MetroStars in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft. Although he signed with the club, Krupnik never appeared with the first team.

He last played for Maccabi Haifa of the Israeli Premier League during the 2008-09 season, appearing in 30 matches and helping the club win its 11th league title.

What do you think? Will Krupnik be the start of something good for once this year in New York? Or just another failed signing by Juan Carlos Osorio and Jeff Agoos?
