Despite sitting third bottom on the overall MLS table, TFC have a very bright future according to former Fulham and Tottenham star Dempsey who made his Sounders debut in the weekend's 2-1 win over the Canadian club.
He feels that the former Blackburn Rovers, Spurs and QPR centre-back and New Zealand skipper is the right man to lead the club forward.
"Toronto's in good shape," said Dempsey when asked if the club can attract a big-name player to BMO Field.
"They've got Ryan Nelsen, who was a great player, he did really well in Europe and I think the players can learn a lot underneath him and that's a good selling point.
"But there's a lot of things that go into a move and everything has to kind of fit into place and they do have a lot of good selling points here."
