Sebastien Le Toux was initially disappointed to be leaving Philadelphia Union for the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The French attacker was traded to the Canadian club earlier this week and despite posting on Twitter that he was sad to be leaving, Whitecaps head coach Martin Rennie have made it clear that Le Toux is looking forward to the Vancouver challenge.

"I think he was more sad about leaving Philadelphia, which is understandable," said Rennie. "He was the face of their franchise for the last two years and very popular.

"But he is excited about becoming popular in Vancouver. He lived in the Northwest when he was in Seattle and loves the area, and he knows a lot about our team and the additions we've made. He knows that there's exciting things happening in Vancouver."
