New England Revolution re-sign Gershon Koffie on loan deal

The New England Revolution have re-acquired midfielder Gershon Koffie ahead of Monday's primary transfer deadline, the club has announced.

Koffie, 25, moves back to the club on a loan deal from Swedish side Hammarby IF, where he was sold in January.

The former Ghana Under-20 international was initially signed by New England from Vancouver in February of last year.

"Gershon had success with us last season and we feel fortunate we were able to reacquire him," Revolution general manger Michael Burns said in the club's statement.

"We look forward to having him back for the remainder of 2017 and expect he'll be able to come in and make an immediate impact."

Koffie spent last season with the Revs, making 19 appearances and providing a career-high four assists.
