New York City FC look set to add another striker to their ranks ahead of their debut campaign in Major League Soccer as FC Union Berlin have revealed that Slovakian forward Adam Nemec has joined the MLS club, though New York City have yet to confirm.
Nemec, 29, is a powerful forward who plays for the Slovakian National Team and he has left 2.Bundesliga club FC Union Berlin to play for New York City, according to the German club’s official website.
“These past weeks have been difficult, and I am glad that we have now found a solution,” Nemec said in the statement on the site.
“I’ll walk away with a few bad experiences, but also very good memories. In my time at Union, I managed to return to the national team, with whom I absolutely want to go to the European Championships. To this end, I have to be playing, and now I have the chance [with NYCFC].”
Nemec joined Union Berlin in 2012, scoring 14 goals in 64 appearances for the club, and he will now hope to hit the ground running in MLS.
New York City have not confirmed the reports that Nemec has signed but he is expected to be revealed as the expansion franchise’s latest signing imminently.
He will join forwards David Villa, Patrick Mullins, Tony Taylor and Khiry Shelton in the Big Apple and will hope to see plenty of regular action in order to keep him in the Slovakian National Team’s setup ahead of the European Championship in 2016.
