Blackburn's Orr eyeing permanent Toronto move

Bradley Orr has already suggested that he would be open to a permanent move to Toronto FC despite not having played a competitive match for the MLS club yet.

The 31-year old English right-back, who is on a season-long loan from Blackburn Rovers, is already looking at a less temporary shift to Canada after getting through his first preseason in North America.

Orr, who has previously played for such clubs as Newcastle United, Burnley, Bristol City, QPR, Ipswich Town and Blackpool, is excited about his debut MLS season under Ryan Nelsen following the arrival of some big-name players like Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley.

"From what I've seen and witnessed so far from Toronto Football Club, you'd be foolish not to want to be here and be a part of what's happening," Orr told MLSsoccer.com.

"First, I've got to prove myself as a valuable asset to the team and then if I ever get asked the question, it would be that I want to stay."

Orr admits he has been battling some slight injuries recently but is confident he will be fit for 2014 season opener with Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field on March 15.
