Portland Timbers sign midfielder Renken

Official release from Portland Timbers

The Portland Timbers today announced that the club has acquired midfielder and US youth international standout Charles Renken off MLS waivers.

Timbers general manager Gavin Wilkinson made the announcement.

Renken, 18, has been a member of US youth national teams since 2005 and most recently participated in a camp with the US U-23 National Team in Germany last fall. At the club level, he played for the U-19 team of German Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim during the 2010-11 season.

"While only 18, Charles is a talented player who is already accustomed to the professional environment," said Amos Magee, Timbers assistant coach. "We believe he will further flourish with the Timbers."
