MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] The New England Revolution has imported its first Designated Player with the signing of Honduran Jerry Bengtson from Motagua. The 25-year-old forward is the eighth player imported with a Designated Player classification in 2012, breaking the record of six set last season.

Bengston is the Revs' second DP. Shalrie Joseph was upgraded to DP status in his 10th MLS season. He is one of four players upgraded to DP status in 2012 along with Mauro Rosales (Seattle), Freddy Adu (Philadelphia) and Javier Morales (Real Salt Lake).

Bengston, 25, has played his entire career in Honduras, where he won three straight scoring titles.

“We’re very pleased that we’ve added Jerry to our squad,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns said in a statement. “He is very well-known within Concacaf and has been a reliable, consistent scorer for both club and country. We’re looking forward to getting him integrated into our system as quickly as possible and to getting him out on the field in MLS games.”

PLAYER (COUNTRY) TEAM
Hamdi Salihi (Albania) D.C. United
Kris Boyd (Scotland) Portland Timbers
Federico Puppo (Uruguay) Chicago Fire
Osvaldo Minda (Ecuador) Chivas USA
Barry Robson (Scotland) Vancouver Whitecaps
Marco Di Vaio (Italy) Montreal Impact
Oscar Boniek Garcia (Honduras) Houston Dynamo
Jerry Bengtson (Honduras) New England Revolution

    Before Shalrie, Milton Caraglio counted as a DP for New England, due to his loan fee.
