[MLS TRANSACTIONS]There is one less member of the Vancouver Whitecaps' Swiss contingent as 27-year-old midfielder Davide Chiumiento, their assist leader, is returning home to play for Swiss Super League club FC Zurich.
Chiumiento joined the Caps toward the end of the 2010 USSF D-2 season after spending three years with FC Luzern. He had two goals and nine assists in 2011 and led the Caps with five assists this season.

“I have really enjoyed my time in Vancouver and I would like to thank the fans, the club, and my teammates for all of their support,” Chiumiento in a statement. “It’s been two great years, but now I look forward to the next chapter of my career, which will fortunately bring me closer to my family.”

Canadian-born Alain Rochat also played with Chiumiento on Switzerland's U-21 team. Frenchman Eric Hassli spent eight seasons in Switzerland before moving to Vancouver.

“Davide has been a very good player and ambassador for Whitecaps FC during his time with the club,” Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity for him to be closer to his family while continuing his soccer career. We would like to thank Davide for all of his contributions to the club and wish him the best of luck in the future.”

-- Real Salt Lake acquired Salt Lake City native Justin Braun from the Montreal Impact in exchange for a conditional 2014 SuperDraft pick. The 25-year-old Braun spent his first four years in MLS with Chivas USA, signing after being spotted while playing for the Utah Select Team in an amateur tournament at the Home Depot Center in January 2008. He scored 24 goals in 96 regular-season games with the Goats but had a lone assist in 12 games this season for Montreal.

-- Toronto FC and LDU Quito finalized a loan deal for unsettled forward Joao Plata. He will be loaned to the Ecuadoran club for six months. Toronto also released Dutch forward Nick Soolsma.
