Toronto FC lands Argentine duo, expects to have players by end of month

April 03, 2013 - 11:16 AM

TORONTO - Reinforcements are on the way to Toronto FC.

The Canadian Press has learned that the MLS franchise has finalized deals for Argentine striker Maximiliano Urrutti and an Argentine midfielder.

Both are expected at the club by the end of the month.

Toronto FC is also working on landing an attacking midfielder in the summer.

The 22-year-old Urrutti, who plays for Newell's Old Boys, has been reported a target of Toronto, although club officials have referred only to chasing an Argentine forward.

The club is looking at possibly categorizing one of the Argentines as a so-called "young designated player."

Only $200,000 of the annual salary of a DP aged 21 to 23 counts against the club's salary cap, less if signed mid-season.
