Vancouver Whitecaps have confirmed the capture of Italian goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi.
Tornaghi, who made nine MLS appearances for the Fire, will be available for Vancouver pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and Canadian work permit and visa.
Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson was delighted to acquire the services of Tornaghi who came through Inter’s youth academy before having loan spells with lower league Italian clubs Como and Rimini.
"I brought him in because I want to have three good goalkeepers on the roster and I expect him to push David Ousted and the already talented pool of goalkeepers that we have.”
Tornaghi, who represented Italy from U16 to U20 level, obtained his green card from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services last year which means he takes up a domestic spot on Vancouver’s MLS roster.
