Is there any word on a possible contract buyout? Or has MLSE come to the understandable conclusion that now is not the time for investments at TFC?
— John Paul Kleiner
MLS rules allow clubs to buy out one player per year (including a DP) from his contract and get the associated salary cap relief. The buyout can happen either in-season or during the off-season. But if the buyout is conducted in-season, it must happen before the end of the MLS secondary transfer window.
