Lee Young-pyo has signed with Vancouver Whitecaps for the 2013 MLS season.

The 35-year old former Tottenham, PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund man and South Korea international made 33 appearances for the Whitecaps in his debut season in 2012 and will now return for a second campaign with Vancouver.

"We're thrilled that Lee has decided to return for a second season in Vancouver," said Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie.

"He was a cornerstone of our backline last year and a leader on the squad. Not only does he bring world-class talent, but also a wealth of experience that will continue to benefit his teammates."
