Just four days after we announced Moses Dyer was set for a shock CPL return, Vancouver FC has announced the signing of the 26-year-old forward on a one-year contract.

The New-Zealand international returns to the CPL after a one-year stint with FC Tulsa in the USL. While he had re-signed with them this spring, plans changed shortly after a new head coach arrived.

“We are very excited to sign Moses to our squad as another example of our ambition as a football club,” said Afshin Ghotbi, Head Coach of Vancouver FC. “Moses is a proven goalscorer in the CPL and combines all the qualities of a top striker including pace, power, timing, and a nose for the goal. He will add more fire power to our already exciting front line.”

Prior to his move to FC Tulsa, where he made 30 appearences and registered four goals and five assists, Dyer spent three seasons with Valour FC. Dyer scored 19 goals for Valour in his three-year stint, including two back-to-back nine-goal seasons, earning himself the title of the club’s top-leading scorer at the end of 2022.

He now returns to Canada looking to emulate that form for his new side in Vancouver.

“I am very excited to return to the CPL with Vancouver FC,” said Dyer about his return to the league. “Canada quickly became like a second home during my previous three years here and it was a place where I flourished into the player I have become today. I know this league has only grown in the last year since I’ve been away and I can’t wait to test myself at this new level with a very competitive and exciting team.”

Dyer has represented New Zealand at U-20, U-23, and senior levels throughout his career, including eleven appearances and one goal for the senior team. He comes into this team with a wealth of experience after playing in New Zealand, Australia and Norway.

Vancouver FC also announced the termination of Mouhamadou ‘Mamadou’ Kane’s contract at the same time. The 20-year-old attacker made two starts in eight appearances for the Eagles in their inaugural season, but never really got a look in after switching from striker to centre-back throughout his short time with Vancouver.

The Eagles will be playing the first of two local friendlies today against the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s All Stars in Surrey, BC. They will then face the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s All Stars next Wednesday at home in Langley. Both matches will have free entry.
