MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] New York City FC made its first trade, acquiring Jeb Brovsky from the Montreal Impact for its second-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. The 25-year-old defender was NYCFC's second acquisition after Spanish World Cup player David Villa.

“I feel very fortunate that we are in a position to add a player of Jeb’s quality this early in our process,” said New York City FC coach Jason Kreis in a statement.  “He is a player my staff and I have been very fond of going back several years ago when he entered the league and we have been watching and appreciating him ever since.  His athleticism, versatility, and passion for the game are evident and I am certain we have added another terrific character to our growing family.”

The 25-year-old Brovsky was initially selected in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft by the Vancouver Whitecaps as the 19th overall pick out of Notre Dame.  After playing in 24 games in his rookie season with Vancouver, Brovsky was then selected by the Montreal Impact as part of the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft and has played 65 regular-season games with that club through this season.

Brovsky will be loaned to a to-be-determined non-MLS club through December 2014. He will then return to New York City FC for the team’s preseason in advance of its inaugural MLS season kicking off in March 2015.
