Toronto sign Bermudan midfielder Reggie Lambe
Toronto FC continued to shape their roster for the 2012 season, this time with the signing of speedy Bermudan international midfielder Reggie Lambe on Wednesday, pending receipt of his work permit and International Transfer Certificate.
Per team and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are very happy to add a young and talented player like Reggie Lambe,” Toronto head coach and technical director Aron Winter said in a club statement. “Reggie is a dangerous winger with a great amount of speed and ability. He will be an important player and will fit in well with our club.”
The 20-year-old, who impressed Winter and the coaching staff during a week-long training stint in October, comes to MLS via English Championship side Ipswich Town, where he failed to break through after emerging from their youth side.
He was loaned out to and made seven appearances for Bristol Rovers in 2011 before returning to Ipswich Town, who released him at the end of last season.
Lambe has 12 caps and four goals for the Bermuda national team. He made his international debut in December 2007 and was a part of the side eliminated from the 2014 World Cup qualifying process.
