The New England Revolution have made a splash in the MLS.

On Sunday, the team announced the acquisition of midfielder Jermaine Jones. 

The 32-year-old was a member of the United States' 2014 World Cup squad.

“This is a great opportunity for us to add one of the best players in the United States to our club,” said Jonathan Kraft in a press release. “We thought Jermaine was the best player for the U.S. in the World Cup and we are excited to welcome him to New England. Robert and I have always said that any major DP signing would need to make an impact, on and off the field, and we believe the addition of Jermaine will do just that. When we learned that he was interested in signing with MLS, we immediately informed the league of our interest. He is a dynamic player and is certain to have a tremendous impact on our team and in our community. We look forward to his many contributions.”

Jones will be coming to play for the Revolution after a 14-year career in Europe.

“I’m very excited to come to MLS and join the Revolution,” said Jones. “New England is an exciting team on the rise, and I believe I can come in and help the team make a push toward MLS Cup. Playing with the U.S. National Team has given me a great connection with the American fans and I’m looking forward to playing in front of them every weekend. I’m ready to get started with the Revs.”

The team will introduce Jones in a press conference at Gillette Stadium at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
