VANCOUVER, BC - Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced on Tuesday that the club has transferred striker Fabián Espíndola to Mexican side Club Necaxa of Liga MX for an undisclosed transfer fee.
"We acquired Fabián last week as we felt he would be a good addition to our team," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. "After we finalized the trade, we were presented with an offer from Club Necaxa, which provides us with a significant amount of allocation money, and puts us in a better position than we were prior to this trade. We discussed the offer with Fabián and he agreed to the move. We will continue to look for another attacking player, as we are always looking to improve our club for the short, medium, and long term.”
“I was preparing for my move to Vancouver – which I know is a great city – when we were presented with an offer to sign with Club Necaxa,” added Espíndola. “This new deal gives my family security and stability as my previous contract was set to expire at the end of this season. I am thankful to Whitecaps FC and wish them all the best.”
Espíndola, 31, was acquired last Wednesday from D.C. United in exchange for general allocation money.
