The Vancouver Whitecaps transferred forward Sergio Cordova to Turkish club Alanyaspor.

The Whitecaps will retain a percentage of future transfer fees. Terms of the deal announced Friday were not disclosed.

The 26-year-old Venezuelan started 14 of 26 appearances in all competitions, including nine of 19 MLS matches. He tallied four goals and one assist.

He transferred to Vancouver from German side FC Augsburg in February.

"Over the past couple weeks, there's been increased interest in Sergio from clubs abroad, which is a credit to him," Whitecaps sporting director Axel Schuster said in a statement. "We received an offer from Alanyaspor that matched what we were looking for and it was also an opportunity that Sergio was interested in pursuing."

The transfer opens a designated player slot for the 2024 MLS season. Vancouver's other DPs are captain Ryan Gauld and defensive midfielder Andres Cubas.
