Harrison, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Red Bull New York announced Thursday that the club has signed defender Armando, pending a medical and the receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate.

"Armando provides us with another experienced option at centerback and we are delighted to have agreed to terms with him," said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh.
