Argentinos Juniors midfielder Laba set for Toronto FC move

Laba has been linked with Toronto for some time now and TFC head coach Ryan Nelsen confirmed an official announcement will soon be made, however, he did make it clear that fellow Argentine Maximiliano Urutti would not be joining.

"We are always looking to improve the squad and Matias Laba is an incredible player," Nelsen told media. "So if he joins the Toronto squad, I will be more than happy.

"Urruti is not coming. That's finished now. With the other player, there should be an announcement soon."
