TFC parts ways with Earnshaw

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Toronto FC announced on Friday that the club has cut ties with seven players, including the team's leading scorer, striker Robert Earnshaw.

The team declined its option on Earnshaw on Friday after the 31-year-old tallied eight goals in his debut season in MLS.

Toronto has expressed a desire to sign a Designated Player at striker, which should explain the reason why the club is letting go of its top attacking option.

TFC has also declined options on the contracts of Bobby Convey, Darel Russell and Michael Thomas, while Danny Koevermans, Justin Braun and Stefan Frei remain out of contract.

"We are writing a new story for TFC, and it begins with our current players," Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. "We have not had a solid core group like this in a long time, and this core is prepared and excited about taking this club to the next level. We will continue discussing the possibility of returning next season with those players whose options were declined."
