MLS Ticker: Moor re-signs in Toronto, Seitz to the Dynamo, and more

Defender Drew Moor is returning to Toronto for another season with the defending MLS Cup champs. The Dallas native signed a one-year extension with an option for 2019 on Friday afternoon, the club announced.

“Few words can express what it means to me and my family to continue representing Toronto FC. We have experienced a lot of special moments both on and off the field in Toronto, the club has given us so much these past two years and there is nowhere else we’d want to be,” he said. “I can’t wait to get back to work with my teammates, coaches and staff ahead of the 2018 season as we defend our MLS Cup championship.”

Moor made 34 appearances in all competitions for the Reds in 2017. He arrived in Toronto before the 2015 season after spending his previous seven campaigns with the Colorado Rapids.
