In return for the 27-year-old athlete, the “Reds” let go of young midfielder Ralph Priso, an international player spot for 2023, a first-round pick in the SuperDraft of the same year as well as an allocation amount general up to $1.03 million.

Both clubs also keep a percentage of the resale amount of the two players.

Kaye, originally from Toronto, wore the Ontario team’s uniform from 2013 to 2014 in the junior ranks, before joining Toronto FC II in 2015. However, he made his Major League Soccer (MLS) debut with Los Angeles FC, whose colors he defended from 2018 to 2021.

“We are very excited to add Mark to our team,” head coach Bob Bradley said in a statement. Over the past five seasons, Mark has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the league. He is an intelligent player who likes to be around the ball, a good passer, ball retriever, competitor and teammate.

With the Rapids this season, Kaye has three goals and one assist in 17 games, including 15 starts.

He also made 36 appearances for Canada, helping the country qualify for the 2022 World Cup earlier this year.

Toronto FC are continuing their roster overhaul after trading former MLS MVP Alejandro Pozuelo to Inter Miami CF. It also hosted Italians Lorenzo Insigne and Domenico Criscito in July.
