Vancouver prepares to welcome Reo-Coker

Nigel Reo-Coker has agreed terms on a move to Major League Soccer with Vancouver Whitecaps, Sky Sports has confirmed.

The 28-year-old, whose wife is American, has opted to make the move across the Atlantic and is due to fly to Canada on Thursday.

"I am delighted, it will be a new experience and I can't wait," Reo-Coker told Sky Sports ahead of flying to Vancouver.

"I am looking forward to the challenge. The contract is for four years, it is something new, exciting and a change of environment and something I am looking forward too.

"I have done my research, I have spoken to Shaka Hislop and Robbie Earle, guys I have played with and who are now working and living there and it is a growing industry and thought it was something I should try.

"It was not an easy decision, I had opportunities to stay in England or even go to Russia and they pursued me, but I felt this is something I really want to try and experience.

"It is an amazing city and as I said I did my research and I spoke with people who have been in MLS and are still there, and everything just seemed to fall into place."
