Rumor Central: Toronto FC submit offer for Honduran striker?

By Simon Borg

Add yet another name to the list of Hondurans connected with a move to MLS.

Toronto FC, who have already been linked to midfielder Arnold Peralta, are now reportedly chasing forward Rommel Quioto (above), according to Honduran outlet Diez.

According to the article, the president of Honduran side Vida, Carla Dip, says she has received an offer from TFC for the 21-year-old, who has featured for the Honduras Under-20 and Under-23 sides but did not make it on the London Olympics squad. He has one cap with the senior team.

"This afternoon, I received an e-mail in which they're interested in the player and they submitted an offer," Dip told Diez. "They would like for him to join them as soon as possible and it would be on loan. I spoke to Quioto and we hope that he can go."

The report finishes by pointing out how Vida were on the verge of transferring Peralta to Toronto a few weeks ago but the player declined at the last minute when an agreement was already in place.

Toronto FC did not comment on the report, with a club spokesman stating that the club doesn't "comment on players not on our roster."
