Canadian international midfielder Julian De Guzman, who appeared in 65 games for Toronto since signing as the club's first Designated Player in club history in 2009, has been sent
to FC Dallas for midfielder Andrew Wiedeman.
"Losing someone like Julian is never easy but this deal gives us increased flexibility to address areas where we have more
pressing needs and opens up a Designated Player spot for our club,” Mariner said in a statement. “On behalf of everyone at Toronto FC, I’d like to thank Julian for his contributions
to the club and wish him well in his future endeavors.” Read the original story...
De Guzman, 31, was the second highest-paid player on the team and one of three Designated Players on the roster, including 2011
