There’s no guarantee that goalkeeper Alex Bono spends a sixth MLS season with Toronto FC, the club that originally drafted him, according to Paul Tenorio of The Athletic.

His report states that several MLS clubs are interested in the 25-year-old, who’s also set to train with Barnsley, a club currently facing the possibility of relegation from England’s second division.

Bono was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, and has since started 76 regular-season games. Memorably, he was TFC’s starting goalkeeper in 2017 as they captured MLS Cup, Supporters’ Shield and Canadian Championship titles, completing one of the best seasons in league history.

Bono made seven appearances (six starts) in 2019, as the introduction of French-American goalkeeper Quentin Westberg pushed the former to the bench. As a result, Bono backed up Westberg while TFC advanced to MLS Cup, where they lost to the Seattle Sounders.

He's earned one US men’s national team cap to date, going the full 90 minutes in a 3-0 friendly win over Bolivia in May 2018.
