TORONTO, Canada—Toronto FC announced today that the club has recalled forward Jordan Perruzza from USL Championship side San Antonio FC.

Perruzza, 20, was loaned out to San Antonio on May 20, and the Toronto native went on to appear in six matches for the Texas-based team. During that span, Perruzza made just one start, logging just 156 minutes of game action, scoring one goal. It’s worth noting that he did pick up a minor injury, which certainly hampered his playing time.

Prior to his loan, the Toronto FC striker appeared in two matches for the club, making his first-team debut on April 14, 2021 when he came off the bench against Club Leon followed by his MLS debut against CF Montreal three days later.

The Homegrown product spent two seasons with Toronto FC II in 2018 and 2019, and during the 2019 season, he led the team with 15 goals, which ranked second in USL League One.

When Perruzza was first loaned out, the plan was to have the young striker join Mike Munoz’s Toronto FC II side. However, with Ayo Akinola away representing Canada for the near future, and Jozy Altidore’s fitness a question mark, it’s unclear if that’s still what’s in the cards for Perruzza.

For what it’s worth, he’ll be available for tomorrow’s match vs. Orlando City SC should TFC require his services.
