Whitecaps introduce DeMerit as first signing | Soccer By Ives

Jay DeMerit finally has a team again.

Four months after starting all four games for the U.S. national team in South Africa, the former Watford defender was introduced at a press conference today as the first MLS signing by the Vancouver Whitecaps. There was no indication if DeMerit signed as a Designated Player.

Since parting ways with Watford at the end of the 2009-10 club season, DeMerit hasnt played on a regular, save for his World Cup appearances

Hell be the first piece of the building process of expansion side Vancouver as they continue their preparations for their 2011 debut. Next year will also mark DeMerits MLS debut, as he went unsigned and undrafted out of college.

What do you think of the news? Glad to see DeMerit join MLS? Who will Vancouver sign next?
