[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.

"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."
