Adam Kwarasey is out in Portland as the Timbers have shipped their goalkeeper to Rosenborg BK of Norway’s Tippeligaen.

Kwarasey, who was born and raised in Norway, played eight seasons in the Tippeligaen before moving to Portland in 2015.

As the Timber’s number-one keeper last season, the 28-year-old helped the club to their first MLS Cup title, winning MLS Save of the Year honors in the process.

However, a finger injury sidelined Kwarasey early this season and he was unable to win back his starting spot from Jake Gleeson.

Kwarasey was named the Tippeligaen’s goalkeeper of the season in 2013 as he helped lead Stromsgodset to the league title.
