Frankie Amaya deal on pause?
April 12, 2021
Last Friday, numerous outlets reported that RBNY's deal for Cincinnati's Frankie Amaya is complete. That is not the case, according to Jeff Carlisle. He reports that the trade "is contingent on Amaya signing a new contract. No new deal as of yet." Amaya still has multiple years on his MLS deal, but RBNY would not want to lose him to Europe on a free transfer.
Denis Hamlett must be very weary about those option years...
"He's got good abilities with his dribbling and passing, and I think he's a very interesting player for me, for our club," Gerhard Struber told The Athletic. "We know that he's a player that can maybe help us. He's very young, I think also he's a player that is very coachable in our direction, our identity and he's an interesting boy. He is right now not our player, but he's an interesting player."
