Former Dreams FC captain Leonard Owusu has been signed by MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

The Canadian side announced on Tuesday they have have secured the services of the midfielder from Israeli Premier League side FC Ashdod with the use of Targeted Allocation Money.

He has agreed a three-year contract with an option for another year.

Owusu will join the team for preseason camp in the coming weeks - pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC), medical, work permit, and visa.

''Leonard is focused on improving and moving forward in his career step-by-step,'' said Whitecaps FC sporting director Axel Schuster.

''He is from a very good academy in Ghana, performed well playing aboard in Israel, and now is the right time for him to take on a new challenge in Vancouver. His characteristics - strong, powerful, dynamic - fit the profile we look for in his position. We are looking forward to having Leonard join our group.''
