Former Jamaican international goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts is heading to US Major League Soccer (MLS) side Orlando City.

The 37-year-old Ricketts was taken first overall in the Expansion Draft yesterday and will be going to his fourth MLS team in five season.

Ricketts was arguably the biggest name selected in the draft between 2015 expansion franchises Orlando and New York City FC.

He was one of three players with an MLS Cup title to his credit snatched up by the newest clubs in the league.

Ricketts has spent the past two-and-a-half seasons with the Portland Timbers and won the Goalkeeper of the Year award in 2013.

He also won the award in 2011, the same season he won the MLS Cup title with the LA Galaxy.
