The Vancouver Whitecaps made it official on Monday, announcing the addition of David Edgar to the roster. The 29 year  has spent his entire career in Great Britain to this point, and you can make your own 'Brexit' joke here. Or don't . Edgar is well known to Canadian fans for his work on the International team, starting 34 of 37 appearances and pitching in with three goals. Edgar brings size to the backline, standing at 6'4 and 190 pounds, and will be able to fit in wherever Carl Robinson needs him. Edgar is described as a versitaile player, and as Andrew Jacobson has proven, that can be very valuable thing to have on your sidelines. That being said, given the porous state of the Whitecaps defence this season so far, I can't imagine he will be waiting on the bench for very long.

According to the Whitecaps news release, the contract is for 18 months and includes an option, pending receipt of his international transfer certificate. Edgar can best be described as versatile, and will be able to fill in on the Whitecaps backline pretty much wherever Carl Robinson needs him.

While the Edgar rumour has been confirmed, we wait for official word about the status Marcel De Jong, who was also rumoured to be joining the club.
