Southampton striker’s MLS switch ruled out by Red Bulls boss

New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch has denied rumours that Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo is on the verge of joining his MLS side.

Ole.com had originally revealed that the Italian international was set to make a move to the USA and it was also later reported by NBC Sports.

But when asked whether there was any truth behind the link, Marsch claimed he hadn’t even heard of Osvaldo, according to onceametro.com.

“Who is that? There’s nothing to comment on. The fact that I didn’t know the player I think should be telling,” said Marsch.

Dani Osvaldo is currently on-loan to Argentinian side Boca Juniors and has scored three league goals in nine appearances. His loan deal with Boca runs out on June 30, so the Saints will be looking for another move for Osvaldo whether it be permanent or temporary.

He has also previously been on-loan at Serie A sides Juventus and Inter Milan, where he made a combined total of 23 league appearances, scoring six goals.

The 29-year-old’s future isn’t certain at this stage, but it looks as though he won’t be joining MLS any time soon. Well at least not with the New York Red Bulls anyway.
