PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Timbers today announced they have acquired an international roster slot for the 2011 and 2012 seasons from the LA Galaxy in exchange for allocation money. Timbers general manager/technical director Gavin Wilkinson made the announcement.
"By acquiring this additional foreign spot, this allows us to invest in a young player who should prove to be a tremendous asset to the future of the organization," said Wilkinson.
Portland receives one of the Galaxy's eight international player slots for two seasons; the roster spot will revert back to the Galaxy after the 2012 season.
