The former Portland Timbers designated player certainly wasn't homeless for too long.

It looks like the former Portland Timbers designated player has rejoined the Scottish Premier League with his former team Kilmarnock. BBC Sport is reporting today that he's set to join the side pending a medical leave of absence. This was the team where Boyd got his start at in the SPL and where he scored over 60 goals.

While Boyd officially departed from the Portland Timbers a few weeks ago, many were left wondering where he would end up. There was speculation that he might end up with Olympaikos in Greece or even with his former SPL team Rangers, despite them not actually being able to sign anybody. This news should come as welcome news to the few Portland fans who were curious about where he would end up.

As for the Portland Timbers? While we probably won't ever know just how much money was exchanged between the two sides in order to break the contract, I think we can all agree that this situation has ended fairly well for everybody involved.

Good luck with Kilmarnock Boyd!

What do you think about Boyd signing with his original club? Are you happy he's been able to find a home so quickly?
