Toronto FC announced Thursday that the club has acquired defender Kyle Davies from the LA Galaxy in exchange for defender Dasan Robinson.

"We are acquiring a young central defender with leadership experience and I feel Kyle will fit into our plans both now and long-term," said Toronto FC Head Coach and Technical Director Aron Winter. "I'd like to thank Dasan for his contributions to our club and wish him well in Los Angeles."

Davies, 22, joined the Galaxy in May and did not make an appearance this season. Davies career began at English side Southampton in 2007 with the youth club and reserve team.
