Timbers Rumors: Timbers to announce signing of Kalif Alhassan?
Gavin Wilkinson recently hinted on Talk Timbers that the Timbers would be signing a young prospect who they expect to make an impact in the MLS. Today John Strong tweeted “News coming today…check that St Louis box score again…”. One thing that stands out on the St. Louis box score is that Kalif Alhassan is listed in the ineligible section.
Kalif Alhassan is a 19 year old from Ghana who is listed as an attacking midfielder and a forward. His first name may also be spelled Khalif. Gavin Wilkinson went on a scouting trip to Ghana in May, so this signing may be the result of that. We have no confirmation on this, so it’s just a rumor at this point. The Timbers will be announcing the signing this afternoon.
It’s official, the Timbers announced the signing of Kalif Alhassan for the remainder of this season.
From the Timbers official website – Timbers sign Ghanaian midfielder Kalif Alhassan.
