Canadian international Hume interested in MLS move

- May 31st, 2014

Iain Hume is one of the most accomplished Canadian strikers to ever compete in England, his close to 500 appearances at various levels is unmatched.

Now, after helping Fleetwood Town recently gain promotion, Hume is setting his sights on a new challenge — potentially Major League Soccer.

“I still think I have plenty to offer,” he told Canadian Soccer contact Max Bell, who operates across the pond. “I’m not closing the door on anything outside the UK.”

When the 30-year-old Hume left Brampton at 16, there were limited opportunities.

“I’ve said that from the time MLS started in Toronto, it’s not something I’d ever say no to, provided everything was right,” Hume said.

“It’s good to have that level of football available back there. If that ever arose and I had a chance to play at TFC on a regular basis my family and friends would love it.”

Having appeared 40 times for Canada, Toronto supporters are well aware of what Hume offers – a tireless work rate to match a quality strike rate, both things head coach Ryan Nelsen cherishes.

“It’s obviously going to be in TFC’s hands,” Hume said. “We’re just going to have to wait and see what happens.”
