HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Former Wolverhampton defender Ronald Zubar has agreed to join Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls.

The team said Tuesday that Zubar will join the team shortly at its training camp in Florida. New York also said it had agreed to contracts with defenders Andrew Jean-Baptiste and Damien Perrinelle, who already are in camp.

The 29-year-old Zubar, who was born in Guadeloupe, has played for Caen (2002-06), Marseille (2006-09), Wolves (2009-13) and Ajaccio (2013-15).

Jean-Baptiste, a 22-year-old New Yorker, played college soccer at Connecticut, was drafted by Portland eighth overall in 2012, played for the Timbers for two years and spent last season with Chivas USA.

Perrinelle, 31, signed with the Red Bulls in July and made two regular-season appearances and four starts in the CONCACAF Champions League. New York did not exercise his 2014 option.

Also Tuesday, the Red Bulls acquired midfielder Felipe from the Montreal Impact for left back Ambroise Oyongo and midfielder Eric Alexander.
