Former Premier League defender makes MLS move

Published Add your comment

Steven Caldwell has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half deal at MLS side Toronto FC after impressing during a loan spell at the club.

Ex-Scotland international Caldwell - whose previous clubs include the likes of Newcastle and Sunderland - was a free agent after his Birmingham contract expired last month, but Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen has moved quickly to secure his signature.

Caldwell conceded he had options elsewhere in England but was drawn in by the prospect of a new challenge of playing abroad.

Caldwell told Shields Gazette: “I had other options back home, but I’ve been there and done it in the Championship.

“I’ve experienced success there, and I loved it, but this is a different challenge, and I have enjoyed the standard of the football.

“I still feel like I have got a lot of football left in me. “I feel really good physically and mentally."

After plying his trade for Burnley and Wigan in the Premier League in recent years, Caldwell will be hoping he can achieve similar success in the MLS with Toronto in this next chapter of his career.
