DONE DEAL: Liverpool defender Gallacher makes Toronto switch

Liverpool defender Tony Gallacher has joined Toronto FC on a season-long loan deal, the club has confirmed.

Signed from Falkirk in 2018, the Scotsman now leaves Liverpool on loan for the first time.

The promising centre-half has been a regular for the U23 side and made his first-team in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa last season.

It is now time for the 21-year-old to prove himself at the senior level and he will get the chance to do so in Major League Soccer this season.

"Tony is a young, promising defender that will provide us with additional depth on our backline for the remainder of the year," said Toronto FC General Manager Ali Curtis. "We feel his character and personality will fit well within our group."
