Brad Rusin has departed Danish club HB Koge to join Vancouver Whitecaps.

The 26-year old American defender leaves Denmark after 18 months and is looking forward to making an impression on head coach Martin Rennie.

"[Center back] is probably the strongest position on the team in terms of depth," Rusin told "But it's not a bad thing. I'm just looking forward to getting out there and competing in training against those guys and giving Martin a tough decision to make.

"I'm a big body, I'm good in the air, strong, aggressive, and tackle - and I distribute the ball well once I get it. I'm not the type of player that will try to dribble everyone. … I'm not one to make it difficult on myself and I'd rather just give it to my teammates and let them do their jobs. I'm a pretty simple player but I get the job done."
