The Portland Timbers have re-signed goalkeeper Aljaz Ivacic.
Ivacic, 28, has mostly held a backup role with the Timbers. He made 12 appearances for T2 in 2019 and has only seven first-team appearances (two in 2020, five in 2021).
Ivacic joined the club in 2019 — moving from NK Olimpija in his hometown of Ljubljana, Slovenia — for a $240k transfer fee (per Transfermarkt). He had leg surgery upon arriving in Portland, according to a report from Jamie Goldberg at The Oregonian.
Ivacic is expected to compete for the starting goalkeeper role alongside David Bingham following the departure of Steve Clark. Portland still have Jeff Attinella under contract, but he is expected to leave the club. Ivacic made $235k last season, per MLSPA.
