NYCFC, Familiar Faces
The story of NYCFC’s offseason from a recruitment side is one of continuity.
City will return for 2020 with a squad that retains 90+% of the collective playing minutes in 2019, meaning there should be no issue with chemistry between the players who are back for more.
Signing Keaton Parks on a permanent basis was a key target for new Sporting Director David Lee and one he accomplished at the start of the year, bringing the midfielder back on a multi-year deal.
Elsewhere, Tayvon Gray, Gudmundur Thórarinsson and Gedion Zelalem have been added to the squad and will provide fresh impetus and competition for places.
