Venezuelan goalkeeper Renny Vega said New York has called him.

The New York Red Bulls are in the market for a goalkeeper. Frank Rost is currently the only keeper on the Red Bulls' roster. The 38-year-old's status for the upcoming season has not been finalized.

One option could be Venezuelan national team player of 2011: goalkeeper Renny Vega (via Empire of Soccer). Vega told the Venezuelan outlet El Nacional that he had been contacted by the Red Bulls and that he had recently spent time in New York on vacation.

They called again. That door is not closed. I wish I had that last experience abroad before retiring, I do not deny it. It is a very personal interest. (via El Nacional)

Vega said he has no problem staying with his club team, Caracas, if nothing comes of the calls from the Red Bulls.

Vegas has made 62 appearances with the Venezuelan national team and made a good showing during the 2011 Copa America, especially against Brazil, holding them scoreless.
