Portland Timbers have signed Steve Evans as their second Homegrown Player.
The 21-year old midfielder joins the Timbers senior roster after starring for the U23s over the past three seasons.
"We have watched Steven develop first-hand over the years, with Eastside Timbers at the youth levels and recently with the Timbers U-23s, into a quality young player," said Gavin Wilkinson, Timbers general manager.
"Being able to develop and produce first-team players through our development system is an important goal of our organization. We are delighted to sign Steven as a Homegrown Player."
Evans joins forward Brent Richards as Portland’s second local player to sign a homegrown deal.
