HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired from Orlando in exchange for Giles Barnes on Feb. 25, 2017.
A 2011 MLS MVP finalist, Shea has become a journeyman over the last six years as he's been unable to find a home either on the pitch or long-term with a club. After bouncing between the midfield and backline in Orlando, he landed in Vancouver where he provides depth on the wing for the Whitecaps.
OUTSIDE MLS: Shea left Dallas after the 2012 season to pursue his career in England, signing with Premiership side Stoke City. Although he only three appearances for the Potters, he also spent time at Barnsley and Birmingham City on loan.
INTERNATIONAL: Shea has 34 senior Men's National Team Appearances, and was a resident of the Bradenton program. He has scored four goals for the United States.
