New York - Australian international Tim Cahill has signed with Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls after a frustrating season in which he scored just two league goals for Everton in the Premier League.

Cahill, 32, joins international stars Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez on the Red Bulls roster. Cahill has played on Australia's last two World Cup teams.

"I am very happy to start a new chapter of my career with the New York Red Bulls," Cahill said. "As we have seen over the past few years, MLS has developed into a very competitive league with many talented players.

"I am impressed with what the Red Bulls are trying to accomplish in MLS and within American soccer and I am looking forward to this new challenge."

Cahill, who had two years left on his contract, joined the Toffees from Millwall in 2004, scoring 68 goals in 278 appearances.
