Toronto FC may have let Sebastian Giovinco walk but they did add a former U.S. Men’s National Team striker to the mix.
After being linked originally to the club by ESPN, Terrence Boyd is now a Toronto FC player. The 27-year-old will not be signed to a Designated Player contract but will join fellow American striker Jozy Altidore in Greg Vanney’s attacking front.
The Washington Post confirmed the move on Thursday, ending a week of negotiations between the two parties.

His most prominent spell came with Rapid Wien between 2012-2014 where he tallied 37 goals and 11 assists in 80 appearances.
Boyd has won 13 caps with the USMNT but last represented the team in 2013.
