The Vancouver Whitecaps have loaned five players to the Charleston Battery of the United Soccer League Pro division, the team announced on Friday.

Midfielders Aminu Abdallah and Andre Lewis and striker Mamadou Diouf will join the Battery from the Whitecaps roster. 

U-23 striker Marlon Ramirez and U-18 defender Jackson Farmer will also be loaned to the USL side.

"Our partnership with Charleston provides a fantastic opportunity for our young players to progress in their development at a great club," said Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson. "Each of these players will be given the opportunity to earn regular first-team minutes at a high level, which will only help as they continue in their careers."

The Battery have a one-year agreement as the Whitecaps' official USL PRO affiliate.
