Tesho Akindele has been named the 2014 AT&T MLS Rookie of the Year.
"At the beginning of the year, I had the highest hopes," Akindele said.
"I wasn't getting too much time, but as things went on, I got so much playing time, got to score goals, in the roster all the time. It's been a fantastic year. I couldn't be happier."
Akindele is eligible to represent both his country of birth Canada and the nation he moved to with his Nigerian parents at a young age - the USA - at international level but is yet to make a decision regarding his allegiance.
"I don't know what the future might hold. I've talked to both the US and Canada camps, and I guess we will see what happens in the future," he added.
