On the back of Luke Singh’s solid performance in his first appearances for the club, Toronto FC announced Friday evening that it has signed the young defender as a homegrown player through 2025.
In doing so, Singh, a 20-year-old native of Brampton, Ont., becomes the 26th player in franchise history to graduate to the first team from the TFC academy.
Singh recently inked a pair of short-term deals with TFC to play in both legs of the club’s round-of-16 series against Club León in the Concacaf Champions League. In his senior team debut, Singh came on as a late substitute in the opening match, a 1-1 draw in Mexico. A week later, he earned his first start and played the full 90 minutes of the return match, as the Reds earned a 2-1 win to advance to the quarter-finals.
