Kah leaves Portland Timbers for Vancouver Whitecaps berth

Pa Modou Kah has been signed by Vancouver Whitecaps it has been confirmed.

The 34-year old defender has remained in the Pacific Northwest after being released by Portland Timbers at the end of last year.

Gambian-born Kah, who has represented Norway at international level, spent 18 months with the Timbers but will now continue his MLS career with regional rivals the Whitecaps which has delighted head coach Carl Robinson.

"Kah is an athletic center back with a wealth of experience, both in MLS and abroad," Robinson said in a club statement.

"Not only does he bring experience, but also great character, and that will be equally important to our team."

Former Valerenga, AIK Stockholm and Roda JC centre-back Kah was enthusiastic about heading to Vancouver after a season-and-a-half of experience in the USA and Canada's top flight.

"I'm very excited about this opportunity," Kah added.

"I'm looking forward to meeting the team and playing in front of the fantastic fans at BC Place. Vancouver has a great team that is heading in the right direction and I will do everything I can to help. I'd like to thank the coaching staff for this opportunity - I can't wait to get started."
