Bundesliga Transfer Rumors: Ex-Hamburg Goalkeeper Frank Rost To New York Red Bulls?

Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls are looking to acquire ex-Hamburg goalkeeper Frank Rost according to this report out of Germany. Rost held down the starting position at Hamburg since his transfer there in January 2007, playing in 150 of their 153 Bundesliga matches.

Rost, 38, just saw his contract with Hamburg expire at the end of the 2010-2011 season and has not attracted much interest from other Bundesliga clubs. Current Red Bull Sporting Director Erik Soler played for Hamburg during his playing career, and he has been in contact with colleagues in the Hamburg area about bringing Rost to New York.

The Red Bulls have had no luck at goalkeeper this season. Canada international Greg Sutton and Senegal international Bouna Coundoul have struggled tremendously to show any kind of quality behind a back line featuring Mexico international Rafa Marquez and USA international Tim Ream. Adding a veteran goalkeeper with the ability of Rost would boost the Red Bulls chances at their ultimate goal of MLS Cup.
