Toronto FC set to add Laba in addition to Urruti

- April 8th, 2013

A deal to bring Argentine youth international Matias Laba to BMO Field is signed, sealed and all but delivered.

The Sun has learned that Laba, a 21-year-old central midfielder currently pulling strings for Argentinos Juniors of Buenos Aires, will join fellow countryman Maximiliano Urruti, of Argentina’s Newell Old Boys, at Toronto FC in the coming weeks, bolstering a tepid TFC attack that’s struggled to find any real rhythm through the first month of the season.

A Sun source with knowledge of the negotiations confirmed the Reds are set to pay a fee for Laba, cementing him into TFC’s roster for the foreseeable future.

Urruti, however, will be on loan at TFC with an option to purchase the 22-year-old forward for the future.
