QPR star set to join Defoe in Toronto

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar is set to finally end his Loftus Road hell by moving to MLS side Toronto, according to Brazilian media outlet Globoesporte.

Cesar has been out in the wilderness this season with Robert Green the number one under Harry Redknapp in the Championship.

The MLS season doesn’t get underway for a few months and so Cesar will be hoping to gain regular first team football as his spot in the Brazilian national team is under threat with a home World Cup coming up in the summer.

Rangers are looking to get Cesar off of their astronomical wage bill and so would be keen to open discussions with Toronto over a permanent deal.

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has already signed for Toronto and will join the Canadian side next month as well as Bradley Orr who is on loan from Blackburn Rovers.

Cesar’s former QPR team mate Ryan Nelson is the manager of Toronto and is trying to persuade the stopper to join him if the franchise can find the money to pay his wages.
