Looking for a new job? Danny Koevermans says his time at TFC is done.

We’ve likely seen the end of the greatest scorer in TFC’s short history.

In Danny Koevermans’ own words: It’s “quite clear.”

His crystal ball is telling him TFC won’t play a role.

In a Dutch interview with Sport Promotion Consultancy this week, Koevermans announced plans to return to the Netherlands upon completion of his MLS contract in December.

“My contract expires and then i will return to the Netherlands,” Koevermans said. “I hope than in the Netherlands to get started.”

Roughly translated, Koevermans said he believes he can still compete at the highest level post-ACL surgery, which saw him miss the start of the current MLS season.

Since then, he’s missed time with a number of minor knocks.

There had been talk that Koevermans might return for an additional season on less money.

At one time the clubs explored the possibility of the Dutchman returning on a non-DP deal,” one TFC source said.

But Koevermans’ latest revelations would seem a pitch to all Dutch clubs that he’s heading home.

“My beginning at Toronto was very promising,” Koevermans said. “For the rest i had no reason to complain in Canada. The country is great and the people are very nice.”

The cash is nice, too. The Dutchman’s collected around $4 million since joining the Reds midway through 2011.

In 22 MLS starts since that time, Koevermans has 17 goals and three assists.
