[MLS TRANSACTIONS] In need of scoring help up front, the New England Revolution acquired former U.S. U-23 and U-20 forward Tony Taylor in a lottery. The Revs and Portland were the only clubs to enter the lottery for Taylor, who has played for teams in Portugal and Cyprus and has experience in the Europa League.
“Tony is a younger player who will come in and add to the competition already on our team,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said. “He has some speed and is versatile in that he can play up top or out wide on the right. We’ll look forward to get him in as soon as possible and integrated into the team.”
Taylor, 25, played at South Florida and Jacksonville before turning pro with Portugal’s Estoril. He bounced between Estoril and Atletico Clube Portugal. He helped win promotion to the Primeira Liga, where he played for the first time in the 2012-13 season.
Taylor spent the 2013-14 season at Cypriot First Division club Omonia, appearing in 20 games in all competitions, including each of their games in the second qualifying round of the 2013-14 Europa League. He scored three times in 13 league appearances.

Taylor scored the game-winning goal in a 4-1 win over Cameroon for the USA at the 2009 U-20 World Cup in Egypt. He was also a member of the U.S. under-23 squad at the 2012 Concacaf Olympic qualifying tournament.

In recent weeks, the Revs have loaned Honduran World Cup player Jerry Bengtson to Belgrano in Argentina and traded Frenchman Saer Sene to New York for Andre Akpan. They have one win in their last nine games to drop below the red line in the Eastern Conference standings.
