“Steven is a dynamic young player that we have seen develop during his time with New York Red Bulls II and we are excited to add him to our roaster,” said New York Red Bulls Sporting Director Denis Hamlett on the club’s website.

“In his time with the club, we have seen the promising qualities he possesses, and we are looking forward to having him on the field with us.

“What we’ve seen from Steven over the last couple of months has been very exciting,” chipped in Head Coach Gerhard Struber.

“He fits into our style of play, and we have seen that in his appearances over the last month and believe that he can succeed at the MLS level.”

Sserwadda is a graduate from Uganda Premier League side KCCA FC Academy.

He left the senior KCCA team to join New York Red Bulls II last year.

The teenager has featured at all levels of Uganda National Football teams, making three cameos in the senior side.
