Dichio heads to Toronto

16 Apr 2007 - 13:17:54

Veteran striker Daniele Dichio has joined Major League Soccer side Toronto FC after agreeing to terminate his contract with Preston North End.

Dichio, 32, was out of contract at Deepdale in the summer but has completed a move Stateside before the MLS transfer window closed on Sunday.

The well-travelled former QPR, West Brom and Sampdoria forward has agreed a three-year contract with Toronto.

"Obviously he didn't want to let the chance pass by, it's a great opportunity for him, so after a lot of talks between me and him, I decided it was probably in his best interests to let him go," North End boss Paul Simpson told the club's official website.

"I sort of wondered how much we would have had Danny with us if we denied him this opportunity and it was a difficult decision."

Toronto FC are coached by former Scotland international Mo Johnston, while former Wolves midfielder Carl Robinson and Sunderland winger Andy Welsh have signed for the club in the build-up to the new season.
