MLS trade: Revs acquire Lee Nguyen from Inter Miami CF

Lee Nguyen is back with the New England Revolution

Lee Nguyen is back with the New England Revolution.

The Revolution acquired him in a trade with Inter Miami CF on Tuesday in exchange for New England's fourth-round pick in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft and "up to $50,000 in General Allocation Money if the player meets certain performance-based metrics with the club."

Nguyen spent six seasons (2012-2017) with the Revs before he was traded to LAFC in 2018. Inter Miami selected him in the 2019 MLS Expansion Draft last November. 

The 34-year-old midfielder was a finalist for league MVP in 2014 -- the same season New England lost in the MLS Cup -- after scoring 18 goals with five assists.

The addition of Nguyen adds some much-needed playmaking and scoring to the Revolution attack. He ranks third on the Revs' all-time goals scored leaderboard with 51.
