TORONTO - Dwayne De Rosario is coming home.

Toronto FC chose the 35-year-old attacking midfielder with the third pick in Major League Soccer's Stage 2 Re-Entry Draft.

The Canadian international became available when D.C. United opted not to pick up his option at the end of the season.

De Rosario played for Toronto from 2009 to 2011 when he was traded to the New York Red Bulls after a contract dispute. He ended the 2011 season with D.C. United and was named league MVP.

The 13-year MLS veteran known as DeRo also played for Houston and San Jose, winning four league titles.

The Toronto native has played 324 regular-season and 24 playoff games in MLS, winning just about everything there is to win in the North American game.
