HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - The New York Red Bulls have signed the brother of defending MLS leading goal-scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Red Bulls sporting director Ali Curtis announced on Monday that midfielder Shaun Wright-Phillips will be joining his brother on the team.

Contract terms were not immediately available for the 33-year-old former member of England’s World Cup team.

Shaun Wright-Phillips will be available for Saturday’s game against the Union in Philadelphia.

Shaun Wright-Phillips has spent time with Queens Park Rangers (2011-15), Manchester City (1999-05, 2008-11) and Chelsea (2005-08) in the Premier League. He has 36 caps and six goals for England from 2004-10.

The last time the brothers played on the same side was in 2004 with Manchester City.
