Whitecaps acquire winger forward Ibini
VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Whitecaps announced Tuesday they have acquired winger/forward Bernie Ibini from Club Brugge KV of Belgium’s top division.
The deal for the Australian international was agreed to prior to the close of Major League Soccer’s primary transfer window on Monday. Ibini’s contract with the Whitecaps runs through 2018, with a club option for the 2019 season.
He will occupy an international roster spot and is set to officially join the Vancouver setup pending receipt of his Canadian work permit and medical exam.
