The Vancouver Whitecaps made a couple of announcements today, qualifying eight players, refusing to qualify two, and trading one.

The Vancouver Whitecaps had a busy Monday, welcoming back several players, while potentially saying goodbye to a few as well.

First up, the club announced they would be exercising 2013 contract options on eight players from the 2012 roster.

They are: Goalkeeper Brad Knighton, defenders Jordan Harvey, Greg Klazura, YP Lee, and Carlyle Mitchell, and midfielders Gershon Koffie, Jun-Marques Davidson, and Matt Watson.

They also declined the options on midfielders Michael Nanchoff and John Thorrington.

Essentially this means that Thorrington may be re-signed to a cheaper deal, or even then, he may be available in the 2012 MLS re-entry draft on Friday.

For Nanchoff, the club still holds the right of refusal, meaning he too may be back with the club.

Earlier in the day, the club announced that they traded Atiba Harris to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for an international roster spot. That gives the club a total of 11 international roster spots through the 2013 season.

The roster as it stands now:

GK: Joe Cannon, Brad Knighton

DEF: Martin Bonjour, Jay Demerit, Jordan Harvey, Greg Klazura, YP Lee, Carlyle Mitchell, Andy O'Brien, Alain Rochat

MID: Bryce Alderson, Gershon Koffie, Jun Marques Davidson, Barry Robson, Russell Teibert, Matt Watson

FWD: Caleb Clarke, Darren Mattocks, Kenny Miller, Omar Salgado, Camilo
