Toronto FC announced Thursday that the club and captain Darren O'Dea have agreed to mutually part ways, allowing him to join FC Metalurh Donetsk of the Ukrainian Premier League.

"Darren had an outstanding opportunity for a long term contract at Donetsk, and we completely understand why he wanted to seize that," said Toronto FC President and General Manager Kevin Payne. "I had a good conversation with him before he left and hope to see him in Toronto in the future. We wish him the best of luck."
