NEW YORK -- David Villa of Spain has signed a three-year contract with New York City FC, becoming the first player on the expansion Major League Soccer team that starts play next season at Yankee Stadium. Taven Bryan Jaguars Jersey . "Throughout my career, Ive always tried to keep pushing myself to achieve new targets, and this represents another important goal for me," Villa said in a statement Monday. "I want to try and help MLS continue to grow, through playing, working hard, scoring goals and at the same time try to make New York City FC become the best team in the league." NYCFC starts play in March, and the team plans to loan him to an unspecified club to keep him in shape until training starts in the third week of January. Claudio Reyna, the teams director of football, said loaning Villa to NYCFC parent Manchester City was not an option. The 32-year-old forward helped Spain win the 2008 European Championship and the 2010 World Cup. He is a member of his countrys roster for next months tournament. He missed the 2012 Euros, which Spain also won, after breaking his left leg while playing for Barcelona in the Club World Cup. He holds Spains record with 56 international goals. MLS said Villa was acquired on a free transfer from Spanish league champion Atletico Madrid, where he scored 15 goals in 47 games in all competitions last season. He previously played for Sporting Gijon (2001-03), Zaragoza (2003-05), Valencia (2005-10) and Barcelona (2010-13). He helped Barcelona win the 2011 Champions League title. Reyna wouldnt say whether NYCFC is interested in signing English midfielder Frank Lampard, who has been with Chelsea since the 2001-02 season. Logan Cooke Jersey . Browns advice worked.

Sterling was ordered to appear for Tuesday afternoons hearing after he couldnt be found Monday. Instead, the first testimony came from a neurologist who concluded that the 80-year-old team owner had Alzheimers disease. Dr. Meril Sue Platzer testified that she was hired by Sterlings wife, Shelly, to evaluate him and made the diagnosis based on two brain scans and a two-hour interview at his home with his wife and an attorney present. "After it was over," she said. "I told him and Mrs. Sterling that he probably has Alzheimers." "What was his reaction?" asked Pierce ODonnell, an attorney for Sterlings wife. "Im hungry. I want to eat," Platzer said. Shelly Sterling "was taken aback, shocked and very concerned for her husband," the doctor said. Sterlings lawyers have argued that hes perfectly capable of handling decisions and that his wife had no authority to unilaterally reach a deal to sell the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. They tried to get a federal judge to switch the probate case to federal court -- which would have delayed it -- but the motion was rejected Monday. The motion argued that Sterlings federal medical privacy rights were violated because the records were disclosed to his wife and the public. HHis lawyers also have argued that Sterling agreed to be mentally evaluated by two doctors under false pretenses, being unaware that the results would be used for legal purposes and thinking it was because of his wifes concern for his health. Taven Bryan Jersey. Platzer testified that she wasnt told that her evaluation was in connection with the Clippers sale and that she was hired after Shelly Sterling viewed her husbands sometimes-rambling television interview with Anderson Cooper. Sterlings attorneys also have argued that the exams and letters regarding his mental capacity were defective and incomplete, and that there was conspiracy to sell the team without his consent. The NBA has moved to oust Sterling because of racist remarks he made to a girlfriend. "The NBA wants to get rid of my client," Sterling attorney Gary Ruttenberg said in court. "They were colluding with Mrs. Sterling and her counsel to do this." His wifes lawyers claim Donald Sterling has been engaging in tactics to run out the clock on the Clippers sale. NBA owners are scheduled to vote on the deal on July 15. Its also the day that Ballmers offer is set to expire -- and there is no deal without the judges approval of the sale. If the sale isnt completed by Sept. 15, the league said it could seize the team and put it up for auction. "He will pull out all the stops to prevent the sale from going forward," ODonnell told Judge Michael Levanas. Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Hoodies Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys ' ' '
