TFC signs Spanish midfielder Alvaro Rey


Spanish midfielder Alvaro Rey had been on trial with Toronto FC in June. Now, with international slots and cap space cleared thanks to a series of recent roster culls, Rey has officially joined the Reds.

The club announced the move on Thursday.

Rey played with Xerez in the Spanish second division in 2012/13. He scored three times and added five assists. He received two straight red cards in 28 games played, so this is a player who has a bit of a nasty streak — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

“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 in a release issued by the club. “He offers something different than we typically see in MLS and we think he’ll help our team become more dangerous.”
