A busy transfer deadline day doesn’t necessarily apply to the New York Cosmos, but the franchise has been as busy as any active club.
Today, the Cosmos announced the signing of goalkeeper Kyle Reynish and midfielder/forward Stefan Dimitrov.
“Kyle is a goalkeeper that I have been following for a long time and I am very happy to be able to bring him to the club,” said Cosmos head coach, Giovanni Savarese. “Along with Carlos Mendes, Kyle Reynish gives us a strong foundation at the back from which we can build around.”
Reynish, 29, has been part of the Real Salt Lake organization since 2007. The 6’3″ California native was drafted in the 4th round of the 2007 SuperDraft. He made three starts with the club last season (matching a career high) going 1-0-2 with a .67 GAA.
Joining Reynish will be former Chicago Fire player Stefan Dimitrov. Dimitrov, 28, is no stranger to the Cosmos organization. Starting with the team’s PDL side and leading into the infamous Paul Scholes Testimonial match, the Bulgarian forward has been involved with the club in some capacity throughout the evolution of this club’s resurrection. Dimitrov came to the country during his teenage years, living with his family in Queens, New York and attending Concordia College where he was the leading scorer in NCAA Divison II Men’s soccer. He has also featured for the New York Pancyprian-Freedoms as well as the Brooklyn Italians.
