Having already added a boatload of new faces in the off-season, Toronto FC has found one more European player to bring in and bolster the defense.

TFC has brought in defender Richard Eckersley on loan from Burnley. A right back by trade, Eckersley previously played for TFC director of player development Paul Mariner at Plymouth Argyle.

Eckersley, 22, will be expected to challenge for the starting right back position with Dan Gargan. A former Manchester United youth player, Eckersley has bounced around in England's lower leagues, including stints with Bradford City and Bury.
