[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Vancouver said good-bye to disgruntled Brazilian striker Camilo, agreeing with Mexican club Queretaro to a transfer fee believed to be in excess of $2 million -- a club record -- for the sale of the 2013 leading scorer.

The 25-year-old striker finished with 39 goals and 16 assists in 92 games during his three seasons with Vancouver.

“We have made the decision to part ways with Camilo Sanvezzo,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. "In doing so, we were able to negotiate a club record transfer fee that will give us additional flexibility as we continue to build our club for the upcoming season and beyond."

REPORT. The status of Jamaican youth international Andre Lewis, the No. 7 overall pick in Thursday's SuperDraft, was a matter of some debate as Cosmos CEO Erik Stover told Goal.com that confirmed that the NASL club reached an agreement on contract in principle. That report was denied the Whitecaps, who drafted him.

HOMEGROWN WATCH. The San Jose Earthquakes signed their first homegrown player, 18-year-old attacking midfielder Tommy Thompson, the son of former U.S. national team defender Gregg Thompson. Tommy Thompson was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year at Indiana in the fall.

    MLS has done a fabulous job of projecting weakness re the handling of this whole Camilo affair. Any consequences for the Mexican FA? What has FIFA done to rectify the situation? If MLS is to grow into a major league, they're going to have to act differently from a selling league/doormat. Isn't America stuffed to the gills with lawyers? Release them unto the world to in the name of MLS so they can "create value" everywhere they go!
