New York sign Juninho

New York Red Bulls have signed Juninho Pernambucano from Vasco de Gama.

There had been reports of the switch following Rafael Marquez' departure from New York last week.

Andy Roxburgh, the club’s sporting director, said: "Juninho is a world-class player who our global sporting director, Gerard Houllier, and I have known and admired for many years.

"Aside from being a top dead-ball specialist and a tremendous talent, Juninho is a fantastic professional both on and off the field.

"He is in great physical shape, and we think he can make a positive impact for us in 2013."
