Rodgers set for New York move

Last updated : 31 December 2010 By Jacob Daniel

Striker Luke Rodgers, who had his Notts County contract cancelled last week, is set to finally complete his move to join former Notts bos Hans Backe at New York Red Bulls. The move was first mooted nine months ago but fell through due to issues with Rodgers' visa, but with that now having been processed the former Shrewsbury man looks set to move across the Atlantic and join the same club as Thierry Henry. Rodgers scored vital goals for Notts as they won the League Two title last year and has scored once this season, against Gateshead in the FA Cup.
