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 MLSsoccer.com. "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."
