Toronto FC signs two DPs

Toronto FC announced this afternoon that it has signed a pair of designated players.

Defensive midfielder Torsten Frings and striker Danny Koevermans will join the Reds when the transfer window opens on July 15. No salaries were disclosed.
Both will bring a level of leadership and pedigree that is sorely lacking on the injury depleted Reds right now. Frings has starred for Germany in past World Cups and Koeverman's time at PSV hasn't been short on goals.

But perhaps the most telling moment of the press conference, and what lies ahead for Toronto, was when Technical Director and Head Coach Aron Winter danced around the question of what will happen to current defensive midfielder Julian DeGuzman.

"Perhaps they both can play the position."

Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the oft-embattled Canadian international.

But what do you think? Do you like Koevermans and Frings? Is Julian DeGuzman all but out the door?
