TORONTO - Prior to Max Urruti’s arrival two weeks ago, Toronto FC president and general manager Kevin Payne spoke of an additional signing, a player “fans will be very excited about.”

“I want people to understand we are still looking at two significant signings in the near future, neither of which is subject to the transfer window,” Payne told the Sun.

Well, Urruti, the player management believes will change Toronto’s attacking fortunes in the near future, finally arrived.

The other player still hasn’t.

It doesn’t mean the second aforementioned difference-maker isn’t coming, but the likelihood of such a move occurring this season decreases with every passing day.

“In terms of an impact player, a DP, that will most likely be next year when we get it right,” TFC head coach Ryan Nelsen said following Saturday’s 1-1 draw in Washington D.C.
