After making his switch to Vancouver Whitecaps, Sierra Leone's Kei Kamara says the playing system at his latest Major League Soccer club will suit his style of play.

The 33-year old Leone Stars international completed a one-year deal with the Canadian club on Sunday, moving from MLS rivals New England Revolution.

In addition, the striker spent two seasons with the New England Revolution and scored 19 goals in 52 matches, including his first ever MLS hat-trick.

"I love the system of play at Vancouver Whitecaps and I believe it will suit my style," Kamara told BBC Sport.

"It's always nice to join a new club and sad to leave an old one.

"I look forward to joining the Whitecaps very much and I can't wait to get started.

"I also wish the Revolution the best of luck and thank the fans for their love."

The BBC reports that Kamara's move came the same weekend a Canadian team won the MLS Cup for the first time ever after Toronto FC defeated Seattle Sounders 2-0 in the final.
