Longtime Whitecaps defender Jordan Harvey leaves for LAFC

It’s official.

Well, almost official.

No official announcements have been made yet, but Jordan Harvey let the cat out of the bag Friday evening.

Harvey, a left back for Vancouver since their inaugural season in 2011, appears ready to join the expansion Los Angeles FC. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Harvey, who is from California.

It’s no surprise that Harvey, a free agent, is leaving town. The writing was on the wall for the 33-year-old in the second half of last season. A staple of the Whitecaps’ starting lineup for many years, Harvey was relegated to bench duty at the tail-end of the year.

A fan favourite for seven seasons, Harvey appeared in 179 MLS regular season matches with the Whitecaps (a club record), starting in 169 of them.
