Toronto FC needed to find somewhere to send Argentine midfielder Matias Laba, and they finally found a taker in a fellow Canadian MLS club.
TFC are sending Laba to the Vancouver Whitecaps via an intraleague loan, Vancouver newspaper The Province reported on Tuesday evening.
Laba became expendable in Toronto after TFC added three Designated Players this winter, including Michael Bradley. Laba joins a Whitecaps side that already has several defensive midfield options, including Nigel Reo-Coker and Gershon Koffie.
Laba is just the second player to make a move via an MLS intraleague loan, joining Tony Cascio, who has joined Houston on loan from the Colorado Rapids.
What do you think of this move? Think the Whitecaps are looking like a playoff contender, or still think the loss of Camilo Sanvezzo will be too much to overcome?
