Summer 2017 MLS Transfer Window Tracker: Portland Timbers

Last updated: July 26, 2017

Signing SB Nation's Stumptown Footy is reporting that the Timbers have signed 22-year-old New Zealand international Bill Tuiloma from Olympique Marseille, and was confirmed on July 26. The deal is reportedly for the remainder of the 2017 season with a team option. The 22-year-old defender and midfielder would become the third member of the Kiwis' 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup squad to make an MLS move this summer, following Michael Boxall and Stefan Marinovic.
Report Portland Timbers midfielder Diego Chara has spoken to his younger brother Yimmi Chara about potentially joining the club, according to Univision. Yimmi Chara, 26, is currently with Liga MX club Monterrey. Capable of playing as a winger or attacking midfielder, he has four goals in 44 games with Los Rayados.
Report The Oregonian's Jamie Goldberg reports that the Timbers have signed Congolese center back Larrys Mabiala. Though Mabiala is expected to join the club in June, he will not be eligible to play for Portland until the secondary transfer window opens on July 10. Mabiala, who played the 2016-17 European season for Turkish side Kayserispor, will likely fill the hole at starting center back after Gbenga Arokoyo was ruled out for the year in preseason.
