Toronto FC have signed academy forward Nicholas Lindsay as their second homegrown player.
The 18-year old follows in the footsteps of Doneil Henry who was given his pro contract late last month and the addition of Lindsay to the senior playing roster was welcomed by interim director of soccer Earl Cochrane.
"We are very happy to have Nicholas on board, and it's a clear indication that our academy staff is doing the right things with these athletes," he said.
"In many ways, Nicholas is the ideal MLS player - incredibly athletic, quick, strong, and confident and has a great head on his shoulders," Cochrane said. "I'm convinced he will be a big part of Toronto FC's short- and long-term future."
