Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto FC announced Tuesday that the club has
sent midfielder Luis Silva to D.C. United in exchange for allocation money.
"Luis Silva is a fine player and an outstanding young man and this was a tough
decision. But we are bringing in new attacking talent this window and Luis'
playing time would likely suffer," said Toronto FC President and General
Manager Kevin Payne. "This move helps give us more flexibility now and for the
future. We wish Luis nothing but the best."
Silva was the fourth overall selection in the 2012 MLS Entry Draft from the
University of California Santa Barbara. The 24-year-old made 54 appearances
for the club and scored seven goals across all competitions.
