Trade front quiet on final day

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] The only deadline-day trade announced by MLS Thursday sent ex-FCD Dallas defender Kyle Davies from Los Angeles to Toronto FC in exchange for former Fire defender Dasan Robinson. Both players thus join their third teams of 2011, as did Dwayne De Rosario in midseason when he moved from New York to D.C. United after starting the season with Toronto FC.

Davies, 22, did not play this season for the Galaxy after being acquired in May from Dallas, for which he played 14 games in 2009 and 2010. He captained the U.S. U-20s at the 2009 World Cup but never held down a regular spot for FCD once Ugo Ihemelu and George John emerged as the preferred pairing at centerback. A broken arm suffered in the 2010 season opener set Davies back, and he never fully recovered from that setback in Dallas.

"We are acquiring a young central defender with leadership experience and I feel Kyle will fit into our plans both now and long-term,” said Toronto FC head coach and technical director Aron Winter in a team press release.

Robinson, 27, came to Toronto from Chicago July 28 and played just one Concacaf Champions League match for TFC. He started 23 games for the Fire as a rookie in 2006 and the same number in 2007, but has battled injuries the past few seasons.

He started 17 games in 2010 and made five appearances with Chicago this season prior to the move to Toronto.
