“Dominic is a player that we have had our eye on for quite some time, and we are pleased to finalize this deal and bring him to Toronto FC,” said team general manager Tim Bezbatchenko in a statement.
“He is a player that has a tremendous amount of speed, and adds a lot to a team’s attack.
“We’d also like to thank Alvaro for his contributions to Toronto FC and wish him well in his future endeavours.”
