[MLS] The New England Revolution tapped its African pipeline, signing Senegalese central midfielder Niouky Desire. He is the fifth African on the Revs' roster.
 
Desire, 23, has played Dakar-based Port Autonome for the past four seasons. Before joining Port Autonome, he featured for ASC Diaraf, another club based in Dakar, for four seasons.

Kenny Mansally and Sainey Nyassi signed with the Revs following their appearance for Gambia in the 2007 Under-20 World Cup in Canada. Kheli Dube arrived from Zimbabwe by way of Coastal Carolina and Lindsey Wilson. Ghanaian Emmanuel Osei joined New England in 2009.

“We’re pleased that we were able to bring Niouky to the Revolution,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns said. “He’s a traditional center midfielder who is comfortable in different formations, and he will give us depth in the middle of the field.”
 
The Revolution is currently in Orlando on a six-day training trip in Orlando, Fla., where they will play MLS foe FC Dallas on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.
