The New York Red Bulls are about to bring a young Championship midfielder to Major League Soccer.
Dru Yearwood is the name, a center midfielder who made his name with Southend United in League One before moving to Brentford this year.

Yearwood, who turned 20 in February, comes with a fee that could rise to just under $1.9 million according to The Southend Echo.
The youngster made 61 appearances with seven assists for Southend United before moving to Brentford last summer, but he struggled to find regular time with the Bees in their push for Premier League promotion.
He made just five appearances for the Bees.
Will he make a big impact for Chris Armas’ side, which started Sean Davis and Cristhian Casseras in a win over Atlanta United this weekend?
If he does, he may one day net a big fee for the Red Bulls. He already has for Brentford, who bought him for about $600,000.Follow @NicholasMendola
