Toronto FC officially parted ways with French winger Nicolas Benezet on Tuesday, sending his rights to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for $50,000 U.S. general allocation money.
Toronto will get another $50,000 in GAM depending if Benezet starts 75 per cent of all games in 2020.
The deal, which had been reported in advance, was confirmed Tuesday.
“We’re delighted to add to our attack someone of Nicolas’ quality,” Colorado GM Padraig Smith said in a statement. “He’s a goal-dangerous, dynamic player who excels out wide, while also offering us positional depth with his ability to play multiple positions in attack.
