VANCOUVER, BC - Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced today that the club has acquired D.C. United’s natural 2014 fourth-round selection – second-round MLS Supplemental Draft – in exchange for the right of first refusal to former Whitecaps FC striker Kyle Porter.
Porter, 23, was a member of the Whitecaps FC Residency program during the 2007-08 season before spending two seasons on loan with Germany's FC Energie Cottbus. In August 2010, the native of Mississauga, Ontario, re-joined Whitecaps FC and made five appearances for Vancouver in the United States Soccer Federation Division-2 Pro League season. Porter has spent the last two years with North American Soccer League side FC Edmonton.
