MLS: Dutch Midfielder Edwin Gorter Joins New England

Dutch midfielder Edwin Gorter has been allocated to the New England Revolution. Gorter, 32, is a playmaking midfielder and free kick specialist who will look to spark the Revolution's offense and set up Joe-Max Moore and newly acquired Raul Diaz Arce. He joins another Dutchman, defender Richard Goulooze, in the revamped Revolution lineup. "Edwin is the exciting player we have been looking for to create offensive chances for us," said Revolution head coach Thomas Rongen. "He possesses an outstanding touch and is the type of player that fans will want to see." Gorter has played for Dutch First Division clubs Roda JC, Utrecht and Vitesse and most recently teamed with American Ernie Stewart at NAC Breda. He has also played for Lugano in the Swiss First Division, Lommel in the Belgian First Division and Caen in the French First Division. In 432 career first-division matches, he has tallied 131 goals. "We feel that we have taken another significant step towards building a championship-caliber team with the addition of Edwin," said New England GM Brian O'Donovan.
