Dickov To Toronto Back On?

  • Paul Dickov, Summer Transfers

It’s been an on and off discussion between striker Paul Dickov and MLS side Toronto FC. A couple weeks ago it was on and then a day later it was off.

As luck would have it today those talks are back on between the two sides.

Former Leicester City striker Paul Dickov has turned down the chance of a return to The Walkers Stadium and is set to move to Major League Soccer.

Dickov is currently in Canada for talks about a switch to Toronto FC who play in the US league.

The 35-year-old Scot spent part of last season on loan at Blackpool, who were also interested in signing him.

Dickov turned down Toronto to possibly join Leicester City, but now he has had a change of heart. He turned down Leicester City over the weekend and is now in Canada talking with Mo Johnston again about joining the club.

For those who may not recall, the Reds put a discovery claim on Dickov so they have the rights to him and to discuss a contract with him before any other club.

Should Dickov sign with the club I will pass along that information to you all. I do know he won’t be a big DP style contract from the club but he should get decent money ($200 to $300K range). This pretty much will confirm that Jeff Cunningham’s days are numbered in Toronto if Dickov signs with the club.

What do you all make of these new developments?
