MLS has signed American goalkeeper Ian Feuer and assigned him to the New England Revolution. Feuer, 26, was signed from English Second Division club Luton Town and is expected to fill the vacancy
in goal for New England, which lost veteran keeper Walter Zenga to retirement. "Ian is unquestionably one of the elite American goalkeepers playing today," Revs coach Thomas Rongen said of the U.S.
national team pool player. "We are happy to have secured the services of a player who will make an important impact on the team." Feuer went to Belgium at the age of 16, and began his professional
career with First Division clubs Club Bruges and RWD Molenbeek in 1992. He returned to the U.S. in 1993 to play for the Los Angeles Salsa before joining West Ham United of the English Premier League
later that year. He was loaned to Peterborough and Luton Town in 1994, and his contract was purchased by the latter club in 1995. Over the past three seasons, Feuer has appeared in 97 league and 18
cup matches for Luton, earning club player of the year honors in 1996. Feuer has joined the Revolution at its spring training in Mexico, and he is expected to be in uniform for New England's season
opener against D.C. United this weekend.
