Haitian defender Lesly Fellinga has officially joined Toronto FC.

The 23-year old defender recently completed a trial with the club and impressed enough to earna contract.

"Lesly is coming in and he will just give us a bit more balance in the team because he is left footed and can play at left back," said general manager Mo Johnston.

Fellinga is expected to line up for his new club against DC United at BMO Field on Saturday.
