Toronto FC signs Guadeloupe defender
The remake of Toronto FC's roster continued Wednesday with the signing of Guadeloupe international defender Eddy Viator.
The 29-year-old had been training with the MLS club for a week.
"We were impressed with what Eddy showed us in training and we want to continue adding depth in this position," Toronto FC coach Aron Winter said in a statement.
"We watched him during the Gold Cup earlier this summer and like his versatility. He can play both right back and centre back."
Viator joins TFC newcomers Torsten Frings, Danny Koevermens, Terry Dunfield, Ryan Johnson, Leandre Griffit and Andy Iro.
Born in Colombes, France, Viator has played for Chateauroux, Grenade and Amiens SC in France.
The five-foot-11, 155-pounder played all three games for Guadeloupe at the recent CONCACAF Gold Cup, including a 1-0 loss to Canada.
Toronto FC was 3-9-9 heading into Wednesday's home game against FC Dallas.
