Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has joined Norwegian outfit Rosenborg, just two seasons into his time with Major League Soccer side Portland Timbers.
Kwarasey moved to the American side in December 2014 from Norwegian club Stromsgodset, but has seen a recent finger injury give away his starting position in Coach Caleb Porter’s set-up.
And according to Timbers, the transfer is a win-win for both parties.
“On behalf of the Timbers, I would like to sincerely thank Adam for his major contributions to the club, both on and off the field, and for his instrumental role in helping the Timbers win their first MLS Cup,” general manager and president of soccer Gavin Wilkinson told the club’s official website.
“This transfer gives the Timbers flexibility to strengthen the team, and is a move that makes sense for Adam, his family and the Timbers.
“We wish him all the best in his career.”
Coach Porter added: “I want to thank Adam for his contributions to the club and for helping us win our first major trophy.
“I enjoyed working with him, and he was a top-class professional in his time here.
“We wish him nothing but the best with his new opportunity.”
Kwarasey made 38 appearances as the Timbers won the topflight last season, and has seven outings to his name this campaign.
