Toronto signs MF Rey

Toronto FC announced Thursday that the club has signed midfielder Alvaro Rey, pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate.

"Alvaro trained with the team for several weeks last month, and played in a reserve match with us against Montreal. He's very technical and quick, and is good at taking on defenders," said Toronto FC President and General Manager Kevin Payne. "He offers something different than we typically see in MLS and we think he'll help our team become more dangerous."

Rey, 24, most recently played for Xerez Club Deportivo of Spain's second division, scoring three goals in his 28 appearances for the club.
