Report: Revolution Acquiring Ian Harkes
The son of former Revs player John Harkes joins New England following four and a half years at Dundee United FC.
Just days after news of Tomás Chancalay’s addition to the New England Revolution roster, Washington Post’s Steven Goff took to Twitter to reveal a second name the Revs will add this summer.
According to Goff, Ian Harkes will sign with the Revs. Harkes is a last name some Revolution fans will recognize as his father, John Harkes, played three seasons with the Revs (1999-2001), where he notched two goals and two assists over 58 appearances.
The 28-year-old central midfielder joins the Revolution after spending the last four and a half years with Scottish Championship side Dundee United FC. Ian appeared in 165 contests for Dundee, where he notched 12 goals and 12 assists.
Some may remember Harkes’ time with D.C. United before making the jump to Scotland. Harkes played two seasons in the nation’s capital as he notched four goals and two assists over 37 appearances for the club.
According to Goff, D.C. United will receive the Revolutions 2024 second-round pick and $50,000 in 2024 GAM for Harkes’ MLS rights.
