The Toronto Sun is reporting this morning that English striker Andy Welsh, formerly of Sunderland and Leicester, is on trial with Toronto FC. According to Mo Johnston, Welsh has been "very impressive." Having been born in 1983, Welsh would therefore be eligible for Youth International status if signed by Toronto. I might suggest with the current selection of forwards currently in camp, does Toronto really need another forward?

According to the article, Mo continues to search for players, with the usual line about a few more on the way with "International /MLS experience". The keeper position remains a going concern for Toronto, as do injuries with the likes of Paulo Nagamura, Ronnie O'Brien, Edson Buddle, Alecko Eskandarian - a big chunk of the salary cap, sitting on the bench this week. The Maurice Edu injury will keep him out of the lineup for at least another month.

Welsh can play on the left side at midfield.
