Statement from Vancouver Whitecaps

VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced today that defender Deklan Wynne has been added to the Whitecaps FC 2 (WFC2) roster in the United Soccer League (USL). Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"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 intergrated with the team."

WFC2 defender Deklan Wynne
• Three senior international caps for New Zealand

As a member of the New Zealand U-20 national team, Wynne started all four of the host side's matches at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, where they bowed out in the Round of 16 to Portugal.
