California-born Iranian defender Steven Beitashour is adding to his international regimen by moving across Canada to join Toronto FC.
The move for the defense-starved Reds comes one day after they announced the addition for former Colorado defender Drew Moor.
Beitashour, 28, has spent the last two seasons with Vancouver after starting his career with his hometown Quakes. He’s six-times capped for Iran.
TFC GM Tim Bezbatchenko is obviously pleased with the addition.
Bez: “We are looking for players that want to be in Toronto. We’ve had our eyes on Steven for a number of years.” #TFCLive
