New England acquires Colombia forward Moreno

The New England Revolution acquired Colombia forward Jose Moreno on loan from Colombian power Once Caldas on Thursday.

The 30-year-old Moreno has played in Colombia, Ukraine, Argentina, Romania and Peru during his career. He earned three caps for Colombia in 2006.

"Jose is a player we targeted during a recent scouting trip and we are excited to been able to complete a deal with him," Revolution general manager Michael Burns said.

Moreno spent the second half of last season in Colombia with Once Caldas, and had seven goals and four assists in 20 appearances.

He will complete his move to New England upon receipt of his U.S. P-1 Visa and his International Transfer Certificate. Per league and club policies, further contract details will not be released.

"He's a strong, target forward who has a lot of experience playing at the highest levels in both South America and Europe. We're looking forward to his arrival as soon as the Visa process is completed," Burns added.
