Nana Attakora, Austin Berry leave the New York Cosmos

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Cosmos had a pair of MLS veterans, Austin Berry and Nana Attakora, on trial as they opened their preseason. According to SBI, neither of the pair will be traveling with the club to Honk Kong, and the Cosmos won't be adding either to the 2015 roster.

The club has added a good amount of experience and versatility to the midfield and attack since the 2014 season came to a close, pushing defensive depth to the forefront over the past few weeks. The club secured the services of Samuel Caceres on a season-long loan this past week to give them a solid option behind the aging Carlos Mendes and injury-ravaged Roversio, but most fans had been hoping that the club would add another experienced body to help further shore up the position.

Gio Savarese will still likely be looking at other options to strengthen ahead of the start of the season, but it would seem unlikely to happen prior to the club returning from the Hong Kong trip. Stay tuned...
