Rumor Central: Toronto FC latest club to tap Honduran pipeline?

By Andrew Wiebe

Keep 'em coming. That seems to be the mindset in MLS as a growing number of Honduran players head north for the United States and Canada.

The latest in a long line of Catratchos appears to be U-23 midfielder Arnold Peralta, who also has one senior cap to his name. On Thursday morning, the 23-year-old's Honduran club, CD Vida, tweeted that he was headed to Toronto.

At a tad taller than 5-foot-7, Peralta isn't likely to be an enforcer in the mold of Roger Espinoza, but he could certainly be similar to Marvin Chavez or Mario Martinez. If he's anywhere close to that duo, TFC may have landed a central piece to their rebuilding campaign.
