Toronto FC announced that it has reached a transfer agreement with Italian Serie A club AS Roma and has signed American international midfielder Michael Bradley as a Designated Player. Bradley will join Toronto FC immediately and he was introduced to media and club supporters Monday alongside English international forward Jermain Defoe, marking a historic day for the club.

“To acquire a star midfielder like Michael Bradley, seen by many as the top American player in the world, alongside a premier striker in Jermain Defoe, makes this a groundbreaking day for Toronto FC and for Major League Soccer,” said Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment President and CEO Tim Leiweke. “We have worked hard this off-season to deliver a winning team to our fans and I would like to thank AS Roma and MLSE ownership for their commitment and support. This is an exciting day for Toronto FC fans and we can’t wait to start the season.”

Bradley began his youth career with the United States U-17 Team Residency Program in Bradenton, Florida where he spent four semesters (2002-04). Bradley turned pro at the age of 16 and was selected thirty-sixth overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the MetroStars. He spent one season in MLS, making 30 appearances and scoring one goal. Bradley was sold to Dutch Eredivisie club SC Heerenveen in January, 2006.
