The New England Revolution will not acquire Hammarby midfielder Gershon Koffie, multiple sources told Pro Soccer USA.
Hammarby sporting director Jesper Jansson was the first to announce that Koffie was not in the Swedish club’s future plans, and the Revolution quickly emerged as the player’s rumored next destination.
Koffie played for the Revolution in 2016 after being acquired in a trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps. Koffie moved to Hammarby permanently in 2017, but he hardly saw playing time and returned to New England on loan midway through the season.
The Revolution still own Koffie’s Major League Soccer rights. MLS opened the player to league-wide availability Friday, but no club stepped forward to sign the player, according to a source.
However, there are some interested parties within the league that may work to acquire the player before the 11:59 p.m. May 1 primary transfer window deadline.
Koffie may have options elsewhere in Europe at the conclusion of the Hammarby season as well.
Koffie has made 178 appearances and recorded nine goals in MLS. He was particularly effective at the center of the Revolution’s 4-4-2 diamond formation under former head coach Jay Heaps in 2016 and 2017.
So far, Koffie has made just three appearances with Hammarby.
