New York Red Bulls and US national team center back Aaron Long is the subject of interest from clubs in England and France ahead of the European January transfer window closing, sources tell MLSsoccer.com.
The Washington Post’s Steven Goff reported that Championship side Reading are set to make a move for the player. According to sources, the Red Bulls have not yet received any offer for Long.
There will be a resolution soon as January transfer window closes in England and France on Monday evening.
Long, 28, was named MLS Defender of the Year in 2018, anchoring RBNY’s backline en route to a Supporters’ Shield title. He has 105 career MLS appearances and is a regular starter with the USMNT under Gregg Berhalter, earning 18 caps to date.
RBNY reportedly rejected “multiple bids” from West Ham for Long in 2019 while MLSsoccer.com also reported that summer that the Red Bulls rejected an offer from a French club.
Long is currently with the USMNT as they prepare to face Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday night.
