It was confirmed several weeks ago that Freddy Hall was joining Toronto FC on a trail and he has remained with the club and involved in training since then. The Bermudian international keeper now seems set to sign a deal with the club to provide more coverage behind Milos Kocic in goal.
His signing with the club is being reported by The Bermuda Sun who even encourage us all to check back tomorrow for their exclusive interview with the player!
A deal for the keeper would not be much of a surprise at this point after he was given the chance to play with the team in the friendly against Liverpool He did well in goal against the English club and garnered praise from the club's coaching staff and his teammates.
Signing Hall would give the team a bit more experienced at backup keeper. As it stands, the only backup to Milos Kocic is academy grad Quillan Roberts who has zero minutes of professional experience. The 27 year old Hall would provide a fairly affordable backup option in case Kocic has to miss any time.
It is likely that Kocic will miss at least one game in the coming months as he and his fiancee are expecting triplets! Kocic would likely be given time off to be with mother and all of the children.
The only real knock on this deal, if it is true, is that it takes up an international slot for what is nothing more than a depth player. The club did open up a spot with the departure of Miguel Aceval and with the transfer window closing soon they may not have time to use up all of their open slots.
