[MLS TRANSACTIONS]The influx of Spaniards into MLS continues as Sporting Kansas City has signed Toni from La Liga club Celta. The 23-year-old Toni began his career as a midfielder but was converted to left back this season, making 12 La Liga appearances in 2013-14.

Toni is a product of the Barcelona youth system like his new SKC teammate Uri Rosell. Of the past five seasons, four were spent at Celta and the fifth on loan at Huesca. He leaves Spain having made 26 La Liga appearances in two seasons.

"We are happy to be able to add a player of his quality to our roster," Sporting manager Peter Vermes said in a statement. "He can play multiple positions within our system, and we hope that we can help him to adapt to our team and to Major League Soccer as quickly as possible."
