Ex-Man Utd full-back Eckersley unlikely to return to Toronto

Richard Eckerlsey may have played his last game for MLS club Toronto FC.

They are the sentiments of general manager Tim Bezbatchenko who has suggested that the Canadian outfit is likely to part ways with the former Manchester United and Burnley full-back this offseason.

"I've been speaking with Richard and I've been speaking with his agent," Bezbatchenko told the Toronto Sun.

"Hopefully we can find a team for him (within the league). I don't think that he'll be back (in Toronto), but nothing has been decided with him.

"At the same time, we're taking calls from other teams and discussing it."

Eckersley originally joined TFC on loan from Burnley in 2011 before signing a permanent deal in January 2012.
