Toronto FC acquires Quincy Amarikwa in trade with Red Bulls

TFC added another piece to its forward line after trading for Eric Hassli Friday night.
Toronto FC announced Saturday that the club has acquired forward Quincy Amarikwa in a trade with the New York Red Bulls. TFC sent a conditional draft pick to New York in exchange for the Californian.

Amarikwa, 24, spent two seasons with the Colorado Rapids before being waved earlier this season. In 31 league appearances with the Rapids, Amarikwa scored three goals.

“With the injury to Danny Koevermans there became an immediate need to add some additional help up top and we feel Quincy will address this area,” said Toronto FC head coach and director of soccer operations Paul Mariner.

“Quincy is a hard worker, with great athletic abilities and a positive attitude. That’s what we look for in all our players. We feel he will fit in with our club nicely.”         

Amarikwa joins Eric Hassli as new additions to the TFC forward line. The French striker was acquired in a trade with Vancouver Friday night.
