TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Transfer
The 25-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Panetolikos in Greece's first division, departs the Canadian club for an undisclosed fee.
“This agreement made sense for all parties involved and came together fairly quickly after Derek informed us he wanted to stay in Europe,” Whitecaps sporting director Axel Schuster said in an official statement.
“We are thankful to Derek for his service to the club and wish him all the best for the future.”
Cornelius signed with Vancouver in 2019, via transfer from Serbian club FK Javor Ivanjica. He scored one goal in 35 MLS games over the next three seasons before his 2022 loan spell in Greece.
