Roma announce Premier League target will join Defoe in Toronto

Michael Bradley is heading back to the MLS, after the Italian club confirmed a deal with the Canadian side has been concluded.

Jermain Defoe’s move to Toronto FC is making headlines across the world, but another international player is set to join Ryan Nelsen’s men also.

Michael Bradley will move back to the MLS after a prolonged spell in Europe, with Roma announcing that a deal has been concluded.

"AS Roma announces that it has signed with Major League Soccer (MLS) a deal for the outright sale of the rights to the player Michael Bradley, for the sum of US $10 million," an official statement on the Serie A side’s website reads.

It is a tidy piece of business by Rudi Garcia’s men, who bought Bradley for roughly $4.6 million in the summer of 2012.

Bradley had also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with the likes of Fulham and Tottenham accredited with an interest in the United States international in recent times.
