Jerry Bengtson will join MLS after signing with New England Revolution, Honduran club Motagua announced.

"Striker Jerry Bengtson will travel tomorrow and submit to a medical examination in order to join his new team," a press release from the Central American squad read on Monday.

Bengtson will join the Revs on a permanent deal, agreeing to a four-year contract.

With Motagua, Bengtson bagged three scoring championships, and was called up by the Honduras national team in 2010. Bengtson was a starter on the team that reached the Gold Cup semifinals in 2011, before bowing out to Mexico in extra time.

Currently, Bengtson is training with the U-23 team that will participate in London for the 2012 Olympic Games, as the now former Motagua man was named one of the three overage players by manager Luis Fernando Suarez.
