    FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts – United States international Jermaine Jones has joined the New England Revolution after being assigned to the club by Major League Soccer following a blind draw with the Chicago Fire that was used to determine his destination, it was announced Monday.

    The midfielder will play club football in the U.S. for the first time after a 14-year career in Europe.  Born in Germany, Jones competed most of his professional career in that country with Eintracht Frankfurt (2000-2004, 2005-2007), Bayer Leverkusen (2004-2005) and Schalke 04 (2007-2010, 2011-2013), in addition to spells with Blackburn Rovers (2011) in England and, most recently, Turkey’s Besiktas (2014).

    “I’m very excited to come to MLS and join the Revolution,” Jones said.  “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 32-year-old has played in 27 career UEFA Champions League games (2 with Bayer Leverkusen, 25 with Schalke 04) and 12 UEFA Europa League matches (12 with Schalke 04).

    Jones made his U.S. international debut in October 9, 2010, in a friendly against Poland and has earned 46 caps, while scoring three goals.  He played every minute of the United States’ four matches in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, netting in a 2-2 draw against Portugal on June 22.

    In 2011, Jones made six starts in the USA’s run to the CONCACAF Gold Cup final
