New York Red Bulls have announced the signing of former England international Shaun Wright-Phillips, who will link up with his younger brother Bradley at the MLS side.

Red Bulls have not disclosed terms of Wright-Phillips’ contract but the 33-year-old winger is available for Saturday’s trip to the Philadelphia Union.

Shaun Wright-Phillips spent the last four seasons at QPR.

Wright-Phillips, who has won 36 caps for England, made 299 Premier League appearances for Manchester City, Chelsea and QPR, who he left this summer after four years at Loftus Road.

Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch said on his club’s website: “We are pleased to add Shaun to our club.

“Shaun has performed at the highest levels of the game for his entire career, in the Premier League and on the international level, and brings a wealth of talent and experience.

“He has been training here and we have seen his professionalism day in and day out. We think he is a tremendous addition both on the field and as a veteran presence in our locker room.”

Striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, 30, joined Red Bulls in 2013 and has scored 41 goals in 63 appearances for the club.

Bradley and Shaun played together at Man City in 2004.
