As per league and team policy, details of the deal were not announced.

"Tyrone is a veteran of this league and we wish him all the best," said manager, director of soccer Mo Johnston. "We are sad to see him go, trades are always difficult but in the long run we feel we have made another move to improve our team."

Marshall, 34, joined Toronto FC in a trade with the LA Galaxy on June 13, 2007 that sent forward Edson Buddle to the west coast. The defender appeared in 40 games with Toronto logging 3,459 minutes. This is the Jamaican International's 11th season in Major League Soccer having made previous stops in Colorado, Miami and Los Angeles.
