Altidore took two shots, with one on goal, but he failed to find the back of the net during Toronto's 3-2 loss at FC Dallas on Saturday.

Atidore bagged a brace in the season-opener against Vancouver on March 7, but he's gone without a goal in fours straight, failing to even get more than one shot on goal in any of those games. Sebastian Giovinco scored both of Toronto's goals Saturday, while Altidore will have to wait until next week at Orlando to try to end his drought.

Altidore bagged a brace during Toronto's 3-1 win over Vancouver on Saturday.

Altidore opened his account in the 32nd minute goal and then netted a 90th-minute penalty to completely shut the door on the Whitecaps. His performance Saturday doubled the number of goals he scored for Sunderland in Premier League play, an he's fully expected to be a dominant force in MLS this season.

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.

Altidore is expected to join MLS side Toronto FC in a player swap that has Jermain Defoe heading back to Sunderland, TSN reports.

Altidore has been a colossal disappointment for the Black Cats, scoring just one Premier League goal in a season-and-a-half. He was linked to a few different MLS clubs, and it's still not guaranteed to be Toronto given MLS' ability to essentially place US stars on certain clubs, but at the very least, it appears Altidore's Premier League days are over.

Altidore got a rare start Saturday and didn't record a shot in the 0-0 draw to Liverpool.

The nightmare in England continues for Altidore and in his first real opportunity, he failed to showed any promise. With a shotless performance, it's unlikely he'll get another start as it appeared just to be a rest day for Steven Fletcher after a three game week. We'll see if he gets any substitute time next weekend against West Ham.

Altidore played 28 minutes off the bench during Sunderland's scoreless draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

Altidore is in a tough spot with speculation of him moving along in the winter transfer window along with getting very limited playing time. He took two shots, with one landing on goal, though he remains a very limited fantasy option given the minuscule playing time.

Altidore saw some substitute time in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday.

Speculation continues to mount that Altidore will be leaving Sunderland during the January transfer window, with Ligue 1 side Lille often mentioned, while his agent has speculated interest from Italy and Germany. Based on his playing time this season, Altidore's best chance for more action would be to leave Sunderland.

Altidore said he may leave Sunderland in January if he is unable to overcome his current struggles, reports Sky Sports.

The American is focused on being active in games and scoring goals to continue to hold his spot with the United States' national team. He said if his situation isn't improved by January that he would be looking elsewhere.
