Toronto FC announced Wednesday it has acquired the number four pick in tomorrow's 2013 MLS SuperDraft along with allocation money from the New England Revolution in exchange for the first overall pick.

“We have our eye on several players in the MLS SuperDraft, but we want to come out of the draft with more than just two player picks,” said Toronto FC President and General Manager Kevin Payne. “We believe we can still get the players we want at the third and fourth picks, and have our team benefit from the allocation money.”

The 2013 MLS SuperDraft takes place Thursday, January 17 in Indianapolis and can be watched live on Toronto FC TV from Noon eastern time.
