[MLS] To the list of MLS players who are training with foreign clubs can be added .... a Swiss citizen. Toronto FC has granted permission to goalkeeper Stefan Frei to train with Liverpool. Frei traveled to England a few days ago and has already started a training stint that will conclude Sunday.

“This is a great opportunity for Stefan and we were happy to give him permission to train with a historic club like Liverpool,” said TFC head coach Aron Winter in a team statement. “He has emerged as one of the top keepers in the league since the start of his career and has certainly earned this special opportunity.”

Frei, 25, has been a regular for TFC since it picked him in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft out of the University of California with the 13th overall selection. During the 2011 season Frei made 27 league appearances and recorded six shutouts. He also played in all four matches as TFC won the Nutrilite Canadian Championship series for the third straight year.

Milos Kocic
started seven of the last nine games in goal after Frei missed some time with a knee injury and the after effects of hard collision with the Crew's Emilio Renteria in September. Frei, a native of Switzerland, would not be subject to UK work-permit requirements should he draw the interest of Liverpool or another European club.
