TORONTO -- Toronto FC acquired a natural third-round pick in the 2012 Major League Soccer SuperDraft from the Colorado Rapids on Tuesday in exchange for midfielder Joseph Nane.

Nane, 22, was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft and made 11 league appearances in his rookie year, starting eight matches, for Toronto.

"We continue to look at options available to us as we rebuild the squad, and this is a move that makes sense for our club," said Earl Cochrane, Toronto FC interim director of soccer.

Nane signed a developmental contract with Toronto in April and made his debut five days later in a 4-1 defeat at the New England Revolution.
