Timbers Sign Defender Ryan Miller
January 21, 2013
PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers have signed defender Ryan Miller, it was announced today. Miller returns to MLS after four seasons in Sweden, where he recently helped Halmstads BK regain promotion to the country’s top flight. He will be added to the Timbers’ roster pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Per league and club policy, terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Ryan is an experienced pro and a great addition to the club,” said Caleb Porter, head coach of the Timbers. “His ability to go box to box as a right back fits what we are looking for in that position. He is another proven piece that brings traits we want in the locker room as well.”
A native of Barrington, Ill., Miller was a fixture on the backline for Halmstads BK during the 2012 season, starting all 30 matches, recording eight assists and aiding in 12 shutouts as the club finished in third place in Sweden’s Superettan (second division) and regained promotion to the Allsvenskan through the promotional playoff.
