“Alexander brings experience at the game’s most competitive levels, and his skill and pedigree will make him an important asset for the club on and off the field,” said Revolution head coach and sporting director Bruce Arena in a team release.

Buttner had been without a club since July, but had spent the past two seasons with Dutch Eredvisie side Vitesse after being on the books at Dinamo Moscow.

The Dutch youth international spent two seasons with Manchester United, from 2012-2014, making just 30 appearances in that time. 

Buttner, who can play in central defense or on the left-flank, began his career at Ajax.
