Toronto FC bolstered their midfield in a big way on Friday.

The team announced that they have signed Spanish midfielder Ager Aketxe using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM). He will be officially added to the roster once he receives his Canadian work permit.

“Ager is a talented midfielder, that developed at an historic club, in one of the top leagues in the world,” said Toronto FC Sr. Vice-President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko.

“Ager has both the ability to create as well as finish. He possesses a tremendous work rate along with a great attitude. We are very excited to bring him to Toronto FC and have no doubt he will be a welcomed addition to our club.”

The 24-year old recently played with Segunda División club Cadiz CF. During his time there, he scored five goals in 18 combined appearances. He also spent time with Athletic Bilbao prior to his lone season with the ‘Submarino amarillo’ in 2017.
