Wales international midfielder Carl Robinson has signed a new two-year deal with FC Toronto. Robinson earned $330,0000 US this past season and will likely be in line for a substantial raise for 2009, although coach Mo Johnston would not divulge the financial details of the deal.
"(Robinson) has accepted our terms," he said. "I am very happy at having him tied down for a couple of more years."
Johnston's focus now is on getting a pair of TFC forwards -- Danny Dichio and Rohan Ricketts -- re-signed for the coming season.
"We want to keep the nucleus of the team together," Johnson said. "Now it's just a matter of adding four or five players. We know what we need; someone wide in the midfield with experience, a centre back and a couple of strikers."
