"Matty is a hard working player with great character and a tremendous attitude," Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson said. "This move was made in the best interest of both Matty's career and the club. We thank Matty for his dedication to the club over the past two seasons and we wish him the best of luck with Chicago Fire."
