Portland Timbers head coach Caleb Porter admits he has been buoyed by the addition of Fanendo Adi.

The 23-year old Nigerian forward has joined the Timbers on loan from Danish club FC Copenhagen and his attributes will give Porter plenty of attacking options after a misfiring start to the 2014 MLS season.

"As I've said all along, I like to have different options, different dimensions depending on what we're looking to get out of the game," Porter said.

"With Adi, you get a guy that's good in the air, a guy that can hold the ball up, so we're obviously excited to have a third striker and a third option."
