Cahill has been a brilliant servant to the Toffees since joining the Merseyside outfit in 2004 although the chance to sign for the Red Bulls was too good to turn down, despite the midfielder admitting that it was always going to be difficult leaving Everton.
“I am very happy to start a new chapter of my career with the New York Red Bulls,” Cahill told the official website.
“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. I will do everything I can to help bring New York its first MLS Cup.”
“I also want to thank everyone at Everton, from the club to tremendous supporters,” he added.
“It has been a privilege to be an Everton player for the past eight years and it was a very difficult decision to leave. I will always support Everton and I wish the club the best of luck in the future.”
