Toronto FC announced the signing of 18 year-old Toronto FC Academy forward Nicholas Lindsay to a professional contract Wednesday.
“Nicholas is a player that has joined in with the first team on numerous occasions already,” said interim head coach Nick Dasovic. “He’s shown a lot of promise in games against Vancouver and Bolton when he’s been called up. He’s a player that has a lot of pace and can strike the ball with both feet. We look forward to having him aboard full time.”
Lindsay, has made two appearances already for the first team this season. The forward made his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship on June 2nd coming on as a substitute in the second half. He also was subbed in during the club's friendly match against Bolton Wanderers on July 21.
Lindsay becomes the second home grown player to sign with Toronto after defender Doneil Henry signed last month.
