Toronto FC Boss Aron Winter: Dwayne DeRosario 'Not Yet' Traded

Dwayne De Rosario is still a member of Toronto FC, but coach Aron Winter barely downplayed rumors that his star was on the way out of town. When asked if De Rosario had been traded, Winter responded, "Not yet. We're still entertaining offers from a number of teams." During the impromptu press conference, Winter suggested there was still a chance that De Rosario could suit up for Toronto FC.


Earlier in the day, widely spread rumors had De Rosario heading to the New York Red Bulls in a package that would have included Tony Tchani, Danleigh Borman and a first-round SuperDraft pick. Supposedly, that deal hit a snag due to roster compliance issues. Fitting De Rosario under the salary cap would have likely required giving him a raise to Designated Player levels and paying down his cap hit with allocation money. If the Red Bulls could figure out a way to fit DeRosario, he could help complete a potentially deadly strike force with Thierry Henry and Juan Agudelo.

The Houston Dynamo, for whom De Rosario played three seasons before signing with Toronto FC, are another potential trade partner. De Rosario won two MLS Cups in Houston after moving with the coach and many of the players from San Jose. Dominic Kinnear remains the Dynamo coach.
