PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Portland Timbers have signed free agent midfielder Ned Grabavoy, who played last season with New York City FC.

Grabavoy is Portland’s first free agent signing since joining Major League Soccer in 2011. Terms were not released.

The 32-year-old Grabavoy is a 12-year MLS veteran. Prior to playing for NYCFC last year for the team’s inaugural season, he spent six seasons with Real Salt Lake.

Grabavoy was drafted by the Los Angeles Galaxy as the 14th overall selection in 2004. He has also played for the San Jose Earthquakes and the Columbus Crew.

Grabavoy brings veteran leadership to the Timbers, who won the MLS Cup last season.
