Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced on Friday that All Whites defender Deklan Wynne has been added to the Whitecaps FC 2 (WFC2) roster in the United Soccer League (USL).
“Deklan has a cultured left foot and is very comfortable on the ball,” WFC2 head coach Alan Koch said. “He comes from a good environment and is willing to learn. We’re looking forward to getting him integrated with the team.”
Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Wynne, who featured in the ASB Premiership for Wanderers SC over the past two seasons as well as winter club East Coast Bays AFC, will be available as early as Sunday (Monday NZ time) when WFC2 visit Portland Timbers 2 at Merlo Field.
Wynne said he is looking forward to the challenge of making his mark.
“This is an exciting opportunity to continue my development with a strong club,” Wynne said.
“They’ve got a great set up and this move will really benefit me as a footballer. I can’t wait to get started and I’m fully focussed on doing my best for my new club.”
All Whites coach Anthony Hudson is delighted for the 20-year-old defender.
“I couldn’t be happier for Deklan,” Hudson said.
“He thoroughly deserves this chance and after being thrown in the deep end with the All Whites he has stepped up really well. I see him going from strength to strength now.”
