Toronto FC GM Kevin Payne says a deal for Newell's Old Boys striker Max Urruti is close.
Payne also revealed plans to bring in a Designated Player signing for coach Ryan Nelsen.
â€śWe have stayed very closely in contact with him (Urruti),â€ť Payne told the Toronto Sun.
â€śWe expect to be able to add Urruti but under a different designation â€¦ If we can get Urruti done then Iâ€™m hoping we can sign one full DP.
â€ś(The DP) could be a guy thatâ€™s very well known, or another thatâ€™s not as well known, but very accomplished out of South America. We could be adding several players, but itâ€™s not like itâ€™s going to be half a dozen. What weâ€™re adding is very high quality.â€ť
