REVOLUTION NOTEBOOK

Notes: Revolution’s Juan Agudelo going to Stoke City

New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo has scored three goals in five appearances since arriving from Chivas USA in a trade May 7, though he has missed the last seven games while recovering from a right knee sprain. His return certainly will help bolster the Revolution attack.

But according to a report Tuesday morning from Soccerbyives.net, Revolution supporters might not see him too much longer.

According to the report, Agudelo has completed a multiyear, pre-contract agreement with the English club Stoke City. Agudelo’s MLS contract expires Dec. 31.

According to the report, any player with less than six months left on his current MLS contract is allowed to sign a “pre-contract agreement,” which is binding.

Agudelo could join Stoke City during England’s January transfer window.

The report notes that Stoke City is making a push to sign Agudelo during England’s summer transfer window, which ends Aug. 31. If the Potters acquire Agudelo while he is still under contract by MLS, though, the English side will have to pay a transfer fee.

The Revolution sent out a statement Tuesday afternoon regarding the reports that said, “We are aware of the stories circulating about Juan Agudelo, but as we’re sure you can understand, we cannot address anything publicly unless an official announcement has been made.’’

The Colombian-born forward who is also a US citizen has appeared for the US national team 17 times.

Cisse cut loose

The Revolution Tuesday reached a contract termination agreement with central midfielder Kalifa Cisse.

The 29-year-old Mali international started six games for the Revolution this season, after signing Nov. 19. Cisse’s last MLS appearance came May 11, in a 1-1 tie with the New York Red Bulls.

Since Cisse’s last appearance, midfielders Clyde Simms and Revolution academy product Scott Caldwell of Braintree have taken his place. Caldwell, 22, has particularly impressed Revolution coach Jay Heaps during his first year of first-team action. Since Cisse’s last appearance, Caldwell has started nine of 12 games, appearing in the other three as a substitute.

In the playoff market

Sunday night before the Revolution’s loss to Toronto, Revolution general manager Michael Burns mentioned during a short news conference that the team hopes to add a player before the MLS’s midseason transfer window ends Aug. 8.

“We are looking to add before Thursday,” Burns said. “But there’s nothing to announce yet. There’s a good chance that something may happen [by Thursday], but it’s not done.”
