The revolving door at BMO Field keeps turning.
Toronto FC traded Tony Tchani to the Columbus Crew on Friday in exchange for centerback Andy Iro and midfielder Leandre Griffit.
The move comes a day after Toronto picked up Terry Dunfield from Vancouver and dealt Jacob Peterson, Alan Gordon and Nana Attakora to San Jose for Ryan Johnson, allocation money and an international roster slot.
A couple of weeks ago, the club announced the signings of Designated Players Torsten Frings and Danny Koevermans, who will be eligible to play for the club after the summer transfer window opened on Friday.
Tchani, the second overall pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, was seen as the key piece in the deal Toronto made with the New York Red Bulls for Dwayne De Rosario back in April. He started 13 games for TFC and scored his only goal for the Reds against Columbus on April 23. After the ensuing celebration he was given a somewhat controversial yellow card, which was his second of the match and resulted in his ejection.
The 26-year-old Iro, meanwhile, had fallen out of favor in Columbus after being a regular starter a year ago. He played sparingly for Robert Warzycha this season, taking a back seat to Julius James, who was brought in after being cut by D.C. United in the offseason.
Griffit barely played with the first team in Columbus, where he has been since last season.
What do you think of the trade? Surprised TFC gave up on Tchani so soon?
