Rumor Central: Report claims Nigel Reo-Coker is set to leave the Vancouver Whitecaps in few weeks
A tumultuos 2014 MLS season could end up in a departure from the Vancouver Whitecaps for Nigel Reo-Coker, according to a report this weekend.
TEAM1040 reporter Mike Martignago tweeted that the club and player "will part ways in a few weeks."

When contacted by MLSsoccer.com on Sunday, a Whitecaps spokesperson said they "do not comment on speculation."
The 30-year-old Reo-Coker, who arrived during 2013 preseason, has only played four matches this season. He started the first three games and then lost his place in the starting lineup after a bizarre accident which saw him trip on a bicycle rack.
When he returned to full health, Reo-Coker could not break into the squad again and was stuck playing for the reserves.
He returned to the Whitecaps starting lineup at right back in the Amway Canadian Championship last week and made a one-minute cameo off the bench on Saturday in the club's 1-0 win in Columbus for his first MLS minutes since March 22.
