MLS side Toronto FC confirmed the signing of Alejandro Pozuelo from KRC Genk on a Designated Player deal. The Spanish midfielder will join the Canadian club in mid-March, once the regular season in Belgium’s top flight ends.

The MLS champions from 2017 announced signing of Pozuelo after several weeks of wait, confirming he will become their third and final Designated Player. Terms of the contract remain unknown, but several reports had talked about the transfer of around nine million pounds.

If that is true, Pozuelo will become one of the top transfers going in MLS – not out of it – as Gonzalo Pity Martinez previously joined Atlanta United from River Plate. Pozuelo is 27 years old and had five goals and nine assists this season in 27 appearances in Belgium’s top flight.

Pozuelo will strengthen Toronto after their main star Sebastian Giovinco left the club during off-season, joining Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal.
