Toronto FC Close to Guevara Deal

Honduran midfielder Amado Guevara looks set to return to Major League Soccer with Toronto FC, league sources tell Ives Galarcep of ESPN Soccernet. Guevara spent the last year playing with Honduran club CD Motagua, on a loan deal from Chivas USA, his former club. In order to sign with Toronto, Guevara and MLS would have to reach a settlement to be released from his current contract. Even so, Toronto could still acquire the player before the team's season opener against Columbus on March 29.

"We are trying hard to have Amado rejoin an MLS team and hope to have the matter resolved by the end of the week," Guevara's agent Patrick McCabe said. Guevara would be the first major off-season acquisition by Toronto FC, although he will not be the club's designated player. TFC recently opened up more cap room by sending Ronnie O'Brien to the San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for a $300,000 allocation. Sources tell Galarcep the Guevara acquisition could be the first in a series of moves by TFC before the transfer window closes on April 15.

Guevara spent five seasons in MLS, four with the New York/New Jersey MetroStars, with whom he earned the 2004 MLS MVP award. According to Galarcep, Toronto sees the playmaker as the perfect complement to holding midfielder Maurice Edu in center midfield.
