The Vancouver Whitecaps are set to sign their first MLS player. They’ve teased it all day on Twitter but really, we all know who it is. Their recent article on their website says its a 2010 USA World Cup star, which basically gives it all away.

Vancouver will likely announce tomorrow morning the signing of defender Jay DeMerit, a move that has been in the works for a while now. And apparently it won’t be a DP slot either, which is good news for the Caps as they’ll get DeMerit at a fairly discounted rate from the sound of things.

Its a good move, no other way around it even though he hasn’t had work since June. I may touch base on this again tomorrow after the announcement.

    Good for Vancouver and good for DC, as they’ll now be #2 on the allocation list.

    You say DeMerit… Altidore tweeted earlier that he had signed with Vancouver today.
