MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] The Portland Timbers have exercised the purchase option on Nigerian forward Fanendo Adi from Danish first division FC Copenhagen. Adi, 23, scored twice in each of his first two starts for the Timbers.

“Taking a player on loan prior to purchasing his rights gives you a first-hand look at the player in every regard and reduces the risk,” said Portland Timbers general manager Gavin Wilkinson in a statement. “With Adi performing well and fitting into the club culture and team dynamics, the decision to take up the purchase option was an easy one. He is young and has already shown the ability to be a dominant forward in this league.”

Adi has four goals and two assists in six MLS games for Portland this season.

“Obviously, Adi has made an immediate impact with our club and we are extremely pleased to have him on board now long-term,” said Timbers head coach Caleb Porter. “He has proven to be an ideal fit in our system and possesses qualities that will make him a very effective striker in this league. We look forward to his contributions for years to come.”
