25-Year-Old Forward Toronto FC MLS
Jozy Altidore Contract Information:
Signed a four-year deal with Sunderland in July 2013 after a $13 million transfer from AZ Alkmaar.
Altidore signed with Toronto FC on Friday as a designated player after transferring from EPL side Sunderland. Jermain Defoe was sent to Sunderland as part of the transaction.
Altidore returns to MLS after playing for Villarreal, Xerez (on loan), Hull City (on loan), Bursaspor (on loan), AZ Alkmaar and Sunderland, an impressive haul of stops for a player who is only 25 years old. After scoring 39 times in 67 appearances for AZ, Altidore scored just once in 42 Premier League appearances for the Black Cats, most of the bench of late due to his scoring struggles. He'll try to get back in form for the Reds, who have an intriguing combination of Altidore and Michael Bradley.
