Juan Agudelo officially joins Revolution after one-year absence

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Juan Agudelo has returned to the New England Revolution after a one-year absence.

The Revolution said Friday the 22-year-old American forward had re-signed with Major League Soccer.

New England acquired Agudelo from Chivas USA in May 2013, and he scored seven goals in 14 regular-season games.

Agudelo signed with Stoke of England's Premier League after the expiration of his MLS contract. He was denied a British work permit and spent the second half of last season in the Netherlands with Utrecht, where he scored three goals in 14 games.

With Agudelo still unable to get a work permit, Stoke reached an agreement to terminate his contract.

Agudelo has two goals in 18 international appearances.
