The Revolution completed a designated player/targeted allocation money signing on Thursday, and the player’s identity is expected to be revealed Friday, according to a tweet from club president Brian Bilello.

It is unclear whether the signing was acquired via the allocation process, though former Sporting Kansas City striker Krisztian Nemeth, who is available through the process, has been linked to New England according to a report from The Bent Musket.

Earlier this month, the Revolution improved their positioning in the allocation rankings when they acquired the second overall spot from the San Jose Earthquakes for the fifth spot and $175,000 worth of General Allocation Money (GAM).

Additionally, New England will also receive either $175,000 in Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) or $100,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM) and $75,000 in TAM from San Jose in January 2018.

The Revolution roster, as currently comprised, has 24 players, six short of the maximum. They have two designated players – Xavier Kouassi and Kei Kamara – and adding a third DP will cost the club an additional $150,000, per MLS roster rules.
