MORGAN SIGNS NEW DEAL WITH TFC

- July 5th, 2012

Toronto FC announced Thursday that the club has resigned former homegrown defender Ashtone Morgan to a long term deal.

“We’re thrilled to sign Ashtone long term to ensure he remains with our club and continues to develop into a top defender in this league,” said head coach Paul Mariner. “Ashtone represents the present and future of this club and he is an important player for us.”

Morgan, 21, is currently in his second season with Toronto FC. He signed with the First Team on March 17, 2011 and made his professional debut as a late substitute against Portland on March 26. To date, Morgan has played in 29 league matches, making 23 starts while registering five assists.

“I’m very happy to sign a new long term deal with the club,” said Morgan. “Being from Toronto and developing at the club has been a great experience and it’s a thrill to be able to continue with Toronto FC for the next few years.”

Morgan became the first graduate from the Toronto FC Academy program to earn a call-up to the Canadian National Team when he was called by coach Stephen Hart ahead of 2014 World Cup qualifying.
