Ex-Villa midfielder Reo-Coker: I've signed for Vancouver Whitecaps for long haul

Former Aston Villa midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is delighted with his move to Vancouver Whitecaps.

Reo-Coker signed for the Caps this week.

"I am delighted, it will be a new experience and I can't wait," he told Sky Sports. "I am looking forward to the challenge. The contract is for four years.

"I have done my research, spoken to Shaka Hislop and Robbie Earle, guys I have played with and who are now working and living there and it is a growing industry and thought it was something I should try."

He called Vancouver an "amazing city ... and I spoke with people who have been in MLS and are still there, and everything just seemed to fall into place."
