Jamie Vardy’s MLS team Rochester New York pull out of league after investment deal collapses with future uncertain
Jamie Vardy’s plans to join Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States have been thrown into doubt after his proposed team, Rochester New York, pulled out of the league following the collapse of an investment deal.
Vardy had been linked with a move to the States after he confirmed he was in talks with the club to become an investor.
However, the news of the club’s withdrawal from the MLS has cast further doubt on the potential move.
Rochester New York had been due to join the MLS in 2021, but the club has now been forced to pull out of the league due to a failed investment deal.
The club released a statement on Monday saying the decision to withdraw from the league was “painful”, but it was “in the best interests of the club”.
The statement went on to say that the club “will now focus on exploring other opportunities to bring professional soccer to Rochester and the region”.
It is unclear what the future holds for Rochester New York, and it is also unclear what impact this will have on Vardy’s proposed move.
Vardy had been linked with a move to the States since last year and had been in talks with the club to become an investor.
The news of the club’s withdrawal from the MLS will come as a blow to the Leicester City star, who had been looking forward to the move.
Vardy has yet to comment on the club’s withdrawal from the league, and it is unclear what the future holds for him.
The news of Rochester New York’s withdrawal from the MLS has been met with disappointment from the soccer community in the US.
Many had been looking forward to the potential move of Vardy to the States and had hoped that the club would be successful in joining the league.
While the future of Rochester New York remains uncertain, it appears that Vardy’s move to the MLS is now in doubt.
