Canada international Adrian Serioux is delighted with his return to Toronto FC. The former FC Dallas defender completed his move yesterday and told the Toronto Star: "It comes down to where do you see yourself settling down?

"For me, Toronto is my home."

While thrilled to be playing before family and friends and no longer being "the foreign uncle to my nieces," Serioux said he wouldn't have sought to come to Toronto if he didn't think the team "was moving in the right direction.

"It's a great atmosphere, a great group of guys and a great balance of talent," he said. "We should be a team to reckon with this year."

Serioux is a key acquisition for TFC, which is trying to shore up a defence which gave up 43 goals last year, tied for fifth-worst in the league.

"Adrian is a very strong defender plus we're adding another quality Canadian player to our roster," general manager Mo Johnston said.
