Guevara Deal (Finally) Done

Toronto FC has signed Honduran midfielder and 2004 MLS MVP Amado Guevara today after weeks of contract talks. The deal also included trading two undisclosed draft picks to Chivas USA for his rights. Toronto FC signed Guevara to a multi-year contract, with just the first year guaranteed, sources say.

Guevara is expected to join the Reds this weekend as they travel to LA to play the Galaxy.

The signing couldn’t come soon enough for the Reds, who have struggled to score in the first two games this season (only one goal scored). Toronto has looked very unorganized in the midfield and have lacked a creative flair when it comes to chances on goal.

Guevara should be able to help that out as he is game fit and he does know how to play in the MLS; so we shouldn’t see any situation where he has to adjust to the pace of the MLS game.

This marks the second signing in a matter of weeks for Toronto after going the majority of the offseason without any quality player additions other than the SuperDraft. Last week we saw the club sign French midfielder Laurent Robert, who has already established himself as a starter for the club.

Most reports say Guevara is ready to play in the MLS this time around and has his head on straight. That’s definitely a good sign if you are a Reds fan.
