HARRISON, N.J. -- The New York Red Bulls acquired former Harvard forward Andre Akpan from the Colorado Rapids on Thursday for a conditional pick in the 2015 draft.

The 25-year-old Akpan, from Grand Prairie, Texas, played one game this year for Colorado, appearing as a substitute March 2 at FC Dallas. He had three goals in 15 games last season, and has four goals in 29 career games, all with Colorado.

"Andre is a strong, physical forward with MLS experience and will provide another attacking option for our coaching staff," Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh said. "We are pleased to sign him and look forward to his contributions in the coming season."
