HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - The New York Red Bulls have added forward Omer Damari to their roster.

Sporting Director Ali Curtis says the Red Bulls got the 27-year-old native of Israel on loan from RB Leipzig of the German Bundesliga. He will join the team for the rest of the season and occupy a designated player spot on the roster.

Damari joined RB Leipzig in January 2014. He spent a half-season with the club before going on loan to Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga, where had four goals and four assists in 16 appearances in 2015-16.

Damari has nine goals in 20 appearances for Israel.

Before moving to Leipzig, Damari spent the 2014-15 season with Austria Wien, where he was teammates with Daniel Royer, who was signed by New York on Wednesday.
