Looking for more options in attack behind Jozy Altidore, Toronto FC has traded Canadian international Jordan Hamilton to Columbus Crew SC for American forward Patrick Mullins.
A source confirmed the deal.
In dealing Hamilton, Toronto is giving up on a homegrown player who at 23 was in his sixth season with the first team.
But the Toronto native saw limited action behind Altidore and the now-departed Sebastian Giovinco. And he was inconsistent when he got his chances, showing flashes of his talent in front of goal.
Hamilton appeared in 53 regular-season games (28 starts) with 11 goals and three assists.
